Construction on homeless shelter nears completion

November 17, 2003

Valdosta - Construction is underway on a new South Georgia homeless shelter.

The New Horizons Facility should be finished by January. It will be the first shelter in Lowndes County to offer long term housing for women, children, and men.

Monday, Steel's Jewelry donated 27 sets of sheets for the new beds.  "Its a need that hadn't really been brought to light, and as soon as we realized it, we wanted to do something to help," said Susan Steel.

The shelter will be able to house 25 people. Residents can stay there for up to two years.
