WHAT’S GOOD?: North Texas churches, shelters open for second night as temps drop into 20s

Dallas, Tx – The Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center opened its doors as a shelter for a second night on Tuesday. Several other shelters in Dallas said they were over capacity Monday night as temperatures will be in the mid-20s overnight. The city’s temporary shelter at the convention center had 240 beds but welcomed more than 300 people on Monday. The city of Dallas also partners with local shelters to provide a connector transportation service that shuttles people from shelter to shelter for free. That service is new and has been running for almost a month now.  Dallas City Manager T.C. Broadnax says the city is working on a potential long term solution to sheltering homeless people.
