After8toEducate Steering Committee Tours Fannie C. Harris Facility

On July 10th, 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. Slated to open this fall, 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, slated to open Spring 2019, will provide residential and other social services to unsheltered DISD high school students.
