New shelter to help women in need

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The Old Savannah City Mission met with service providers at what will be their emergency shelter for women and children.

They want to make access to important services easier for those who really need it the most.

"We're going to coach you. Other people are going to coach you. We're going to work together to get homeless women back on track and empowered to move forward in life," said Jim Lewis, Executive Director of the Savannah City Mission.

The Old Savannah City Mission's emergency shelter for women and children will open sometime next year.
