Renovation Genesis Women’s Shelter

Dallas, Texas

At an undisclosed site in southern Dallas, Shelter Ministries is providing transitional housing, job training and counseling services for women and children who are victims of domestic abuse. Consisting of 19 apartment style units, office space, counseling and meeting rooms the project provides a safe and secure environment for women and children to start new lives. Drawing architectural details from the surrounding neighborhood, Annie’s house is appropriately scaled and designed to present a welcoming environment but not draw attention to its purpose. Annie’s House marks the first of three projects on this site which include the Onstead Park and support facility and a renovation of the original Genesis Women’s Shelter.
