DALLAS— More than 500 homeless people got the VIP treatment Monday at the Omni Dallas.
It’s an annual event put on by the “Soup-Mobile.”.
But this year, instead of putting the homeless in a hotel room for the night, they held a banquet and job fair with on site interviews.
“This year, for the first time, an opportunity for a lot of them to get jobs on the spot to help them move to the next level,” Soup-Mobile spokesperson Meliene Roussel said.
The Soup-Mobile calls the change “trading a night for a lifetime.”
