Guests from D. C.



Big day today at Central Dallas Ministries.

Cabinet Secretary Steve Preston (above left), U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and Director Jedd Medefind (below right), the Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives will tour our "Destination Home" permanent supportive housing site in North Dallas. Plans include visits to our tenants' homes and a round table conversation with tenants and program facilitators.

Mr. Preston and Mr. Medefind were directed to our project by the regional HUD office in Ft. Worth as an example of a "housing first" effort that was working well.

Needless to say, we are honored and thrilled by the visit. I am eager for these Bush Administration leaders to see and evaluate what we are up to among a number of our formerly homeless neighbors.
