Shelters Plan Expansion

With more people seeking help for their addictions... And more expected to seek help over the next few years... Programs are planning expansions.

Faith City Ministries say they have a long term plan to add beds, and they aren't the only ones.

Diann Gilmore with Downtown Women's Center says,"Hopefully, the good Lord helping us, we will be expanding abba house and that way we can serve more women in their own private apartment."

Gilmore says not only will they be expanding their long term treatment facilities, they are hoping to start a 30 day residential treatment center.

Currently there is not one in Amarillo, so those seeking a 30 day treatment have to go to Lubbock or farther.
