Homelessness in North Texas

According to a census conducted on January 25th, there are 5,163 homeless persons in Dallas and 4,042 homeless in Forth Worth. These totals represent a decrease from the 2006 homeless population across North Texas. We’ll spend this hour discussing the issue of homelessness and what’s being done to help the homeless with Mike Rawlings, homeless czar for the City of Dallas, Cindy Honey, of the Metro Dallas Homeless Alliance, and Otis Thornton, homeless coordinator for Fort Worth.
