Our House Shelter Makes Big Announcement

Leaders will build new children's center.
LITTLE ROCK, AR-- Our House Shelter says it now has enough money to build a new children's center.

Leaders say they met their fundraising goal of $4 million. The space will help 142 homeless children.

"Our program is all about getting parents back into the workforce and without childcare and safe programs for their kids, these parents who want to work are not able to get a job. It is impossible to find a job if you have a one year old in tow," said executive director Georgia Mjartan

Leaders say it took about a year to reach this point in the pre-building process.
