DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Saturday for the unveiling of a new medical center at the Dallas LIFE Foundation homeless shelter.

The ceremony took place at 2 p.m., opening the doors to new dental, medical and vision clinics.

The project began last fall, according to spokeswoman Lori Swarner.

Construction on the the $230,000 project began last fall through the efforts of a private donor.

The new center features a lobby/reception area, three dental examination rooms, one medical and one vision examination rooms and a lab.

Wireless X-ray machines and the latest computer technology is installed in the facility.

According to the foundation’s website, anyone staying at Dallas LIFE Foundation homeless shelter can access the new clinics for free.

“Licensed medical personnel treat illnesses, provide preventive care, and lead wellness classes on hygiene, nutrition, infections, managing hypertension, and more. Dental services range from cleanings and fillings, to dentures,” a statement on the foundation’s website reads.

In addition, the Dallas LIFE Foundation homeless shelter facility also received a $400,000 makeover to its kitchen and dining areas.

The Dallas LIFE Foundation homeless shelter, located at 1100 Cadiz St., holds up to 700 residents.
