New homeless shelter for women and children opens in Pikeville

PIKEVILLE, Ky. (WYMT) - A new homeless shelter is now open in Pikeville.

On Monday, WestCare officially opened their new facility for women and children.

The facility, just off of US 23, can house up to 16 women and children.

The current WestCare shelter will now be a men only facility.

Last year, officials say they served around 600 men, women, and children...so the expansion is greatly needed.

Jeffry Caudill says, "Our goal is to get women on their feet, find them permenant housing, get them services they need, and help them get them jobs."

For more information on the facility or if you would like to donate items you can call 606-432-9442.
