The more than 60 partners of The Way Home have reduced chronic homelessness by 70% and overall homelessness by nearly 50% in Houston, Harris County, and Fort Bend County, and our community is still on track to end chronic homelessness by the end of this year. As a result, two of our partner organizations will be undergoing changes in the coming weeks as part of a larger Downtown Transition Plan:
- Palmer’s The Way Station will be closing permanently with a last day of service on August 28.
- The Beacon’s Day Center will temporarily suspend services for capital improvements with a last day of service on September 21, and a re-open in mid-October (date subject to change based on construction schedules).
- Only the Day Center will be closed during this time. All other programs at the Dunn Center (Beacon Law, COMPASS, Coordinated Access, etc.) will remain open during construction.
