Salvation Army’s New Dallas Homeless Center Wins Approval

The Dallas News shared the Salvation Army’s proposed 20-acre campus in Northwest Dallas has received zoning approval by the Dallas City Council. Neighboring property owners had previously raised objections to the new shelter due to concerns about increased crime and reduced property values.

The Salvation Army and nearby property owners reached an agreement on increased security and barring registered sex offenders from the campus.

The new campus will include 150 beds for emergency sheltering for men, women and families; 150 beds for its substance-abuse-treatment program; and 250 transitional housing units for individuals, and 20 units for families. The new, larger facility will replace the smaller and aging Carr P. Collins Social Service Center on Harry Hines Boulevard in the Medical District.
