Newgate Mission launches campaign to help homeless

Posted: Updated:

The number of homeless persons in Northeast Texas has more than doubled during the past eight years.

The Northeast Texas Homeless Consortium participated in last week's statewide point-in-time survey to get a census of the homeless in Texas. The group said there are about 650 homeless people in its six-county area. That's compared with fewer than 300 homeless people in 2005.

Newgate mission has launched a $200,000 campaign to add about 5,000 square feet at its mission on Mobberly avenue to meet the growing need.
