St. Anne's is an emergency family shelter for women and children. It is the only shelter specifically for female-led families.

"It's going to be so nice," Shelby Hagelstein with St. Anne's said. "It's going to make it much more homey for our families which is a big thing. It's so trauma-informed to have it homey and cozy."

Even the materials being used are higher-end, like you would find in a real apartment or house.

At any time, St. Anne's can house 16 families.
