Last week, Our Daily Bread Denton, Together with Monsignor King Outreach Center, held a ribbon cutting with the City of Denton and Denton County.
Yesterday, the Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA) joined the effort by supplying five buses to transport residents and their belongings to the new outreach center at 909 N. Loop 288, Denton.
“Thank you so very much for everything,” said Shelter Director Trish Brooks. “It’s extremely beautiful to see this come to fruition today.”
DCTA this week has expanded GoZone services powered by VIA to include coverage for the new outreach center to meet the changing needs of our community. Beginning January 3, Denton Connect Bus Route 3 will be rerouted to add service to the new location as part of its regular schedule.
New features available at the facility include a computer lounge area, showers, meeting rooms, onsite laundry, a work training program, commercial kitchen and wellness services. Providing services in one facility breaks down barriers that keep people from finding the help they need.
The new Our Daily Bread, Together with Monsignor King Outreach Center, feeds, shelters and cares for the homeless and at-risk in our community while maintaining the dignity of guests and offering opportunities for a new start. The organization has served the homeless and at-risk in Denton County for over 20 years. With over 2,000 volunteers logging more than 30,000 volunteer hours every year, the agency provides over 800 meals daily.
