On LA's Homeless Blog today, PATH Dallas director Ken McGill offers a sneak peek at the $16.5-million one-stop homeless assistance "mall" set to open shortly at 1818 Corsicana Street, at the intersection of S. St. Paul Street. Notes McGill, PATH Dallas at the Bridge "will operate in facility tailored after the PATH Mall in Los Angeles," which you can see here. Also, notes McGill after being stopped by a homeless man who expressed his gratitude and excitement, "I am truly encouraged as I walk the streets of Dallas with our 40 employees, knowing that our partnership together with the City of Dallas, and the 15 partner agencies at the Bridge, in our 'mall-like' atmosphere will deliver effective services that will help men and women like this gentleman escape homelessness." --Robert Wilonsky
