Donations help shelter to keep doors open

We have an update on a story we first told you about in mid-November about a shelter in danger of having to kick out several homeless people because of fire code violations.

Thanks to generous donations, the New Birth Outreach Ministries in Conroe now has more than enough money to make the necessary improvements to their facility. The fire marshal had cited the shelter for numerous violations and the shelter did not have the money to get up to code.

The shelter is home to 15 people battling drug addiction. Donations came from all over, but one couple alone donated about $8,000

We worked on this story with the help of our Houston Community Newspaper partners. You can read more in The Conroe Courier of Montgomery County.
