Dallas homeless lack shelter, solution | News for Dallas, Texas | Latest News: "Dallas' homeless shelter is overcrowded and filthy and offers few services beyond a spot on a bare tile floor or a cracked outdoor parking lot.

The city, which opened the Day Resource Center 24 hours a day in January after a truck ran into and killed two men sleeping on the sidewalk, has found itself short on money, staff and space to meet the increased demand.

Neighboring business owners call the center a disaster and say people sleep, urinate and throw litter on their properties.

And residents complain of rampant theft, unsanitary conditions and a shortage of caseworkers."
