Faith City Opens Shelter for Families

A new safe haven for homeless families in Amarillo opened this afternoon...to keep even more families warm this winter. 

The new four thousand square foot family lighthouse will accommodate 50 people....60 percent more than the old lighthouse building.
   

The Faith City Ministries Shelter is designed especially for women and multiple child families...and Faith City's Rick Phillips says its grand opening couldn't come at a better time.

"The timing is unbelievable cause we don't have any heat, our gas lines are all down, our furnaces have quit so we've gotta move in here before the cold snap Wednesday and Thursday because we wont be able to heat the old building."
  

Phillips hopes Faith City Ministries new addition will prevent them from having to turn away families this winter.
