Hope House shelter hosts grand opening Monday

SPOKANE, Wash. — The new Hope House shelter at 1301 W Third Ave. has been three years in the making and it’s finally ready to open.

With 100 shelter beds and 60 apartments, Volunteers of America is excited to have more space to house men and women who are homeless or leaving domestic violence situations.

The first floor will have the shelter space while three other floors have apartments — these are for people who have been homeless for a long time or have a disability.

The public can visit the new Hope House from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday, April 26.

Tenants are expected to be moved in this Thursday, April 29 and throughout the end of the week.
