High-End Designers Revamp Homeless Shelter

Rooms at a homeless shelter are getting a new lease on life



    Interior designers in Dallas are changing the face of homelessness in North Texas one room at a time. 

    Blue Print designers usually work in high-end homes, but with the help of their distributors, the group has redecorated one room at Dallas Life Homeless Shelter.

    Dallas Life Foundation is the largest homeless shelter in North Texas, housing over 500 people.

    The shelter has 51 rooms dedicated for families, Blue Print redesigned one of them. They’re just one of several design groups to take on the task. In all, nearly half of the family rooms have now been redecorated.

    Dallas Life’s executive director, Bob Sweeney, said he’s always touched when businesses donate their time and products to help these families.

    "Companies like Blue Print coming out and doing this shows you people want to give back, we're really thrilled," Sweeney said.
