Over a year after a winter storm severely damaged a crucial resource center in Southern Dallas, the ribbon is finally being cut Tuesday to reopen the facility to serve more families in need.

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul North Texas will reopen the St. Vincent Center in Lancaster.

The organization provides emergency assistance to North Texans in need through rent, utilities, food, clothing, furnishings, and medications.

Like many other buildings across the region at the time, the center experienced flooding from burst water pipes that caused extensive damage during the historic winter storm in February 2021.
