Crisis center for kids under construction in Lamar County

LAMAR COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - Homes of Hope for Children, a crisis shelter for children, is nearing completion of a new facility in Lamar County.

More than 40 acres of land have been set aside for development outside of Purvis.

At a recent fundraiser, the ministry brought in more than $65,000 to continue construction.

Director Michael Garrett hopes to have part of the campus open by July in order to serve seven girls, but says funding is still an issue and lacks about $300,000.
