What used to be a drug house in Middletown is about to reopen as a homeless shelter.
The "Center of Hope for Women and Children" will open on Girard Avenue in the next couple of weeks.
Kristine Highley is about to move in with here two small children. "The kids will have a place to play at, and there's going to be lots of activities for them to do and stuff and they don't have to be cooped up inside all day when it's nice out."
Dr. Mitchell Foster of the Hope House says this new location will supplement their current location on North Main Street.
"Newer rooms, bigger rooms, there's an excitement for the children to have a swing, have a play ground to be able to go outside and to be able to run around and burn off some energy.
