Fiona Smith has seen first hand how Noah Project helps, "The Noah Project helped them get back on their feet, helped them see a new light for themselves".
And today they celebrated their big move into a more modern, and much bigger facility to better serve Abilene.
LeighAnn Fry is the executive director, who has watched this dream come to life."It's a huge problem in our community, and we needed bigger facilities that could better address these issues", says Fry.
In the previous facility, often times there would be up to seven people sharing a bedroom and fourteen people to one bathroom, now in this new building, there's much more room.
Terasa Mata lived in the Noah Project with here young children."I had been most of my life abused, physically, verbally, emotionally. We stayed with them for three months, and afterwards I continued my outreach", Mata explains.
Mata tells us she considers the people behind the Noah Project to be her guardian angels.
"If it wasn't for the Noah Project, I wouldn't be here today. I would be dead. I don't know what would have happened to my kids, that today are so beautiful", Mata tells us.
Mata hopes the new 18,000 square foot, volunteer-funded building, can help more women like her.
The new Noah Project location will feature adult education classes, job placement as well as specialized childcare. If you want more information, visit their website here.
