Thanks to CitySquare's friends from Whataburger, community leader Ms. Edna Pemberton, the Concord Baptist Church, Dallas City Councilman Tennell Atkins and other community businesses and supporters - as well as our outstanding staff and program participants of Destination Home.
With their sacrifice and generosity, our neighbors in our permanent supportive housing program will have a happy Thanksgiving...many for the first time in a long time in their own apartments.
Bringing the community in will go a long way towards helping those who would otherwise be out on the street, that there are people who care about them and are willing to help them achieve the self sufficiency of which they are capable...
The best thing is, Ms Pemberton, Councilman Atkins and Concord Church have shown their commitment for the long haul, not just the holidays. It's exciting when people believe in people!
