Wednesday, Staunton's Valley Mission is celebrating a fresh space for families and children with an open house.

The women's ministry project “Love” has worked for years to organize and raise the money to build and remodel the space inside the faith-based homeless shelter. Now, there are rooms designed for family members of all ages.

A Dr. Seuss theme helped the area designated for children come to life.

"Before it was just a concrete floor with some very nice rugs that were donated. There were some bookshelves, but it wasn't my idea of cozy or what a home should be and again for these kids, this is a horrible time in their lives, and they should at least have some security,” said Jennifer Eccles, volunteer.

There's also space dedicated to private counseling. Volunteers say the goal is to provide a supportive environment for moms and their children going through difficult transitions in their lives.

The open house runs until 7 p.m.
