Dallas Program Puts 40 Homeless Women Into New Apartments

The walls are bare. The closets, nearly empty. And there's barely any furniture inside.

But for 40 formerly homeless women, the Pebbles Apartments are home sweet home.The Metro Dallas Homeless Alliance, which coordinates area homeless services, opened Dallas' first permanent supportive housing program for homeless women and children there last month. A full-time caseworker helps tenants with things such as medical care and job searches.
