Dream Center clients will have place to stay after being forced to move

JACKSON, Tenn.-The Dream Center in Jackson said clients will have a place to stay after they are forced to move from their current building.

The shelter for homeless women and children recently learned its building on Old Hickory Boulevard Extended had been sold and they have until the end of the year to get out.

The executive director said someone has offered them the use of two homes in the northwest part of the city until they find a permanent location.

“For the most part, it’s just, do what we can, you know, to make it, to get by. We don’t want anybody that came in here homeless, homeless again,” said Gail Gustafson, executive director of The Dream Center.

The fire inspector is scheduled to inspect the houses Monday to make sure that they are up to code.
