The Incredible Success of the Bridge

In 2004, when the City of Dallas presented its 10-year Plan to End Chronic Homelessness which included a recommendation to build a new homeless facility in the city, it faced fierce opposition from the business community opposed to locating services near the central business district. Citizens had doubts about the City’s ability to manage an increasing homeless population, and they criticized the Metro Dallas Homeless Alliance’s nonjudgmental philosophy toward their clientele.
