Fannie C. Harris Youth Center & After8toEducate

As part of the After8toEducate collaborative, Promise House is expanding our residential services to a second location by transforming the Fannie C. Harris Elementary School building into the new Fannie C. Harris Youth Center to combat youth homelessness amongst students within DISD high schools. The After8 initiative uses a collective impact approach to bring together a cross-sector group of public-private partners towards the same goal of promoting self-sufficiency and stable housing among unsheltered high school youth ages 14-21. After8 is the city’s first collective approach to provide a single solution for homeless youth and could be a possible model approach to be replicated in other jurisdictions. Partners in the collaborative include: DISD, who provided and will maintain the facility, CitySquare, who will operate the drop-in center, Social Venture Partners Dallas who is assisting with management.Promise House will manage, staff, and operate all residential services. This will almost double our Emergency Youth Shelter, adding 26 beds, and increase our Transitional Living Program capacity by 9 beds. Like current Promise House residential services clients, these youth will receive not only basics like food and shelter, but also access to medical, dental, and mental health services; counseling and therapy; and tutoring and other educational resources.

Focus on Teens

With the closure of schools in Dallas and Fort Worth ISDs, many homeless adolescents have limited access to basic needs items, such as food and hygiene products, that they depend on during the school year. Focus on Teens (FOT) typically serves 280 homeless students each week during the school year through Drop-in Centers and Supply Closets that are managed through FOT but hosted by individual schools. Right now, students served by FOT have limited access to the food and basic needs items they typically receive through FOT services, as all Dallas and Fort Worth ISD campuses are currently locked. FOT anticipates a significant need for these items when students are allowed to have access to their school campuses (likely in May or June 2020) and is stocking these items in preparation of this need. FOT believes that the demand for food and basic needs items will be significantly higher than usual during the summer of 2020 because the population of families who have lost permanent shelter as a result of the economic crisis will have increased significantly. Typically, FOT serves approximately 50 students each week throughout the summer, but is planning to serve a minimum of 100-150 students this summer.
