After8toEducate recognizes each unsheltered youth as a whole individual with the potential to overcome all aspects of homelessness, not just one. Fannie C. Harris Youth Center will house both a Drop-In Center and Residential Services.
35 beds available for emergency youth shelter and transitional living program services
Academic, emotional, and social support services such as tutoring, job training, counseling, and family reunification resources
The Fannie C. Harris Youth Center’s Drop-In Center serves homeless youth ages 14-21 with immediate support services. These services include access to showers, laundry facilities, meals, and clothing. The Drop-In Center offers social services reconnecting youth to education and providing housing stabilization support, employment resources and access to healthcare. Current hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 9am-6pm. The Drop-In Center is operated and managed separately by CitySquare.
The residential services component will serve unsheltered Dallas ISD high school students with emergency shelter and transitional living services. This component will be operated and managed separately by Promise House.
Residential services component renovations will be complete by Fall 2019. Both the Drop-In Center and Residential Services will operate 24/7 by early 2020.
