Steering Committee Tours Fannie C. Harris Facility

Several of After8’s 40-member cross-sector Steering Committee toured the former Fannie C. Harris Elementary School, future site of the After8toEducate collaborative’s drop-in center and emergency youth shelter. The committee had the opportunity to see first hand the renovation in progress. The drop-in center, on the first level, will serve homeless youth ages 14-21 by providing access to laundry services, meals, school enrollment services, showers, and other supportive services. The shelter component will provide residential and other social services to unsheltered DISD high school students.
