The "Our House" shelter is currently in its development and funding stages. The shelter would be specially designed to provide housing for homeless and unaccompanied youth.
A public meeting was held this evening to discuss the need for such a facility in Abilene. Randy Perkins, one of the project leaders, says this facility would serve as more than just a shelter.
Perkins says the over 32 organizations involved in the project have already secured three grants and are moving forward in the development of this shelter.
