Staff at New Beginnings Transitional Shelter in Wallace had a vision for the clients there — to make sure they felt like they were home and not in a shelter.
With a mobile unit donation from Marlboro County School District and help from various volunteers and partners, staff moved into their resident services building earlier this month.
"We have our space," said Shelter Services Coordinator Janice Hamlin. "They have their space. They can move around the house without all of our business taking place in the office."
Hamlin along with Janice Rozier, vice-chair of Pee Dee Coalition regional board and chairman of the Marlboro County Pee Dee Coalition Board, and Christy Moore, volunteer coordinator, shared an update about the shelter with school district officials at the December Board of Education Meeting.
