The Drop-In Center at the Fannie C. Harris Youth Center will open and operate this summer Monday through Friday from 9am-6pm beginning June 3. The Drop-In Center will serve homeless youth ages 14-21 with immediate support services. These services include access to showers, laundry facilities, meals, clothing, and other supports. The opening of these crisis-intervention support services comes at an auspicious time as homeless students face even more limited resources during the summer break. The Drop-In Center, operated and managed by CitySquare , will also offer social services reconnecting youth to education and providing housing stabilization support, employment resources and access to healthcare. This drop-in support will operate 24/7 once the residential services wing opens later this Fall.
Starting June 10, the Fannie C. Harris Youth Center will operate as a summer meal site for those ages 14-18! Youth can receive breakfast and lunch every Monday-Friday as a part of Dallas ISD’s summer meal program . This is a great addition to services already offered at the Drop-In Center this summer.
