​​FORT WORTH - The Presbyterian Night Shelter's​ Morris Foundation Women and Children's Center is located at 1105 E. Presidio St.

The $8.4 million building is a 30,000-sf, mixed-use facility designed to meet the needs of families with growing children.

Construction will begin soon on the former 7,500-sf facility for women and children. 

That building will be renovated to increase capacity for single women by 20 percent, from 130 up to 160.

The facility features 40 private dormitory-style residences, up from 12. The additional space increases the capacity for women with children by 33 percent, from 30 families to 40 families.

The new center also boasts a larger dining room, a state-of-the-art kitchen that can be leased to caterers and food trucks, connecting bathrooms, an indoor playroom and study hall, and a large outdoor play area.

A 1,000-sf retail space will be home to a future social enterprise business that will provide internships, job training and revenue. ​
