Central Dallas Ministries' "Destination Home" for the Homeless

On March 13, Central Dallas Ministries hosted its 13th Annual Urban Ministries Prayer Breakfast, with Mayor Tom as the keynote speaker. At that time, Larry James' organization debuted the video below, titled "Destination Home," Central Dallas Ministries' latest short among several spotlighting the city's homeless and focusing on how they came to find themselves living on the street. Says James in the just-posted video, which highlights CDM's attempts to get folks places to live, there are "5,163 homeless individuals on the streets of Dallas at any given time," with the numbers "creeping up slightly." --Robert Wilonsky
