A group from Academic Partnerships came prepared for anything June 17 at the Austin Street Shelter on Hickory Street in Dallas.

The volunteer team, consisting of Melanie Hovland, Randall Johnson, Angelita Floyd, Patrick Taillat, Lisa Echols, Bryan Mason and Walter Copeland, was all set to serve about 30 people, but with the inclement conditions more than 100 members of the community were taken care of.

Austin Street Center, nationally recognized for its unique therapeutic program for the homeless, offers a safe, clean shelter and an evening meal for more than 300 men and women each night. Additionally, it provides substance abuse treatment, medical and psychiatric care, adult rehabilitation, a transitional living facility for clients who qualify, and a beautiful interdenominational chapel.
