The Bridge Homeless Assistance Center in Dallas, Texas by Overland Partners

June 27th, 2011 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Overland Partners

The Bridge Homeless Assistance Center was conceived to engage and regenerate our most disenfranchised members of the community and improve the social equity of the City of Dallas.  The result is a campus with buildings arranged around a series of landscaped courtyards that are designed to promote a sense of safety, a place where personal connections can be made and relationships developed.  The Bridge is the largest homeless shelter to receive LEED Silver certification.
