Longview Receives Homeless Care Grant

Help is on the way for the homeless and disabled in East Texas. Grants from the Department of Housing and Urban Development will provide the city of Longview with  $225, 000 to be used for the Shelter Plus program.  That program provides housing to the homeless and disabled.

The Sabine Valley Treatment center is getting $399,000 which will fund a transitional housing facility. Following state budget cuts about six months ago, Sabine Vlley had to close its center called "The Kirkpatrick".  It housed women dealing with substance abuse problems. They are now re-opening that center under another name.
