ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany nonprofit is one step closer to opening it's new group maternity home to help young homeless people.
On Tuesday night city commissioners unanimously approved Open Arms to lease a city-owned, five-unit building in the 1400 block of Jefferson Street.
The building will be used for a maternity group home.
The five-year grant will serve young adults ages 16 through 22.
Services are provided for up to 21 months, or until a young person turns 18 years old if they enter a program at age 16.
