House of Hope comes to Roanoke

ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ7) With winter upon us, one organization is trying hard to quickly open it's doors to a new transitional house in southwest Roanoke.

The Hope Center is expanding it's services to help the homeless population. The group is fixing up a house in Roanoke for four to five men transitioning back to the work force. Organizers hope the one-on-one help can give residents the life skills they need to get back on their feet.

Darlene Lewis, House of Hope: " I don't know my life without this process, but in working all these years I always have known or believed there was another step that we had not gotten to and so for me it's a chance to bring that next step that I've seen missing," said Darlene Lewis, House of Hope.

House of Hope is accepting household items and monetary donations.
