Lufkin Dream Center closing residency program

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Seven months after a $100,000 grant saved it from closing, the Lufkin Dream Center has announced it will be closing its residency program at the end of the year.

In a letter on its Facebook page, the center announced it will suspend the residency program which assists homeless and at-risk addicts.

The center will continue with its outreach ministries, including the upcoming Christmas Eve Feed.

The center almost closed in May, but a $100,000 grant from the T.L.L. Temple Foundation kept it going. However, Director Jeremiah Campbell said in May it would take another $200,000 to keep the center running through the end of the year.
