A community project in the East Lake area will soon help several women in crisis.
The house just built is part of a non-profit ministry called Esther's Place.
Organizer's say the home on Dodds Avenue is for women in need of a transitional living program.
Starting Monday it will be officially open for business.
It hold six women, however the demand is much higher.
Volunteers say it has been a dream of theirs for the last few years, and has taken them about seven months to build.
Judson Jadoobirsingh, an organizer, says, "There are a lot of programs for men right now, but very few opportunities for women coming out of Silverdale and Bradley County, and this is program that allows women to be nurtured and be taught education, responsibility."
Heidi Drew, the Program Director and Chaplain, adds, "We are going to look at three different areas for the women to grow in, one is their spiritual growth, one is their emotional recovery, and the third is going to be purposeful living."
The women can stay at the home for 12 months.
Organizers hope to build a shelter in the near future to house even more women.
