Tuesday’s Fort Worth City Council meeting featured a presentation by Directions Home and the Tarrant County Homeless Coalition (TCHC) on the recent 100 Day Veteran Challenge. Tammy McGhee, executive director for TCHC, made the presentation, along with Tara Perez, Directions Home manager.

The city of Fort Worth, alongside Tarrant County Homeless Coalition and other partner organizations in the community, housed 181 homeless veterans in 100 days between Sept. 10 and Nov. 8. It exceeded the goal of housing 100 homeless veterans and getting veterans into a place to call home by the holidays.

“Thank you for exceeding your goal by far. What a great cause for this city,” District 7 Councilman and Mayor Pro Tem Dennis Shingleton said.

Partner organizations active in this collaborative effort with the City of Fort Worth and TCHC included the city of Arlington, DRC Solutions (formerly Day Resource Center for the Homeless), Presbyterian Night Shelter, Fort Worth Housing Solutions, Catholic Charities Fort Worth, Veterans Affairs, The Salvation Army, Arlington Life Shelter, Union Gospel Mission, MHMR Tarrant County, Endeavors, Arlington Housing Authority, Tarrant County Housing Authority and others.
