Fort Worth mayor Betsy Price was on the streets Tuesday to
raise awareness about homelessness in the city.
Price was at Burnett Park holding up a sign with others on a
street team getting the attention of drivers headed into downtown during rush
The signs were for Directions Home, a 10-year plan adopted
in Ft. Worth in 2008 to reduce homelessness.
Instead of temporary shelters, the plan places homeless in
permanent housing with case management services.
More than 1,200 Ft. Worth residents have been able to rebuild
their lives through the program.
