Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate agents were prepared to get down to work with CitySquare, preparing for the grand opening of the Fannie C. Harris Youth Center on Thursday. The new facility in East Dallas will serve homeless youth with support services.
“It’s awesome to have 25 people come in today and just get ready to hit the ground running. Nobody was waiting. Everyone just jumped in and helped,” Senior Director of CitySquare TRAC Program Madeline Reedy said.
DPMRE agents spent the morning sorting out donations, cleaning and organizing the facility.
Angela McCants (Preston Center Office) says she’s enjoyed volunteering with CitySquare, a local nonprofit fighting poverty in Dallas.
“I love giving back. I’ve been looking forward to this opportunity and seeing a different aspect of what CitySquare is doing for the homeless and for children,” McCants said.
The youth center will have a soft launch on June 3, which will house both a drop-in center and residential services, including access to showers, laundry facilities, employment resources and a safe place.
