City’s unsheltered put a face on homelessness for Denton council members at weekend meeting

Unsheltered meeting

Advocates and members of Denton’s unsheltered community met Saturday with two members of the City Council at Emily Fowler Central Library to discuss issues and suggestions for improving life for those living on the streets.

Affordable housing, local jobs and bathrooms, including port-a-potties, and clean showers were the top issues Denton’s unsheltered community discussed with two Denton City Council members who attended a Saturday afternoon listening meeting at Emily Fowler Central Library.
