Downtown Dallas library starts opening doors to homeless people in new way
Dallas Morning News
Gregorio Travoli spends his nights lying in a tent in downtown Dallas and most of his days at the J.

Karen R. Harker‘s insight:

I’m mixed about the way Dallas has changed in its treatment of homeless persons.  The Bridge, changes to way they are treated at Parkland, the work of CitySquare, and changes to they way homeless are treated at the library (like this) show promise of moving Dallas down from it’s “peak” of being the 6th worst city for treating homelessness (beating out Houston – see this: http://www.nationalhomeless.org/publications/crimreport/).  However, other changes are less hopeful, including the removal of benches in downtown, making it a crime to sleep on benches, and criminalizing panhandling of any kind.
