There are separate wings for men, women, and families, keeping everyone under the same roof.

The shelter also has a multi-purpose room, which the organization says they will be able to host resume seminars and job searching opportunities.

“That’s a lot of our barriers, is getting someone to some of that training because they don’t have transportation,” said New Hope Executive Director Chris Crawley. “This way, we can bring people in here and be able to facilitate 15-20 people instead of one or two at a time.”

New Hope is looking to open their new shelter in late April.
