Posted: Updated:

A new home in Wheeling has was dedicated Tuesday afternoon to help people get back on their feet.

It's an event that brought people from all over the area, including Mayor Andy McKenzie, the dedication of the Hospitality home was led by Bishop Michael Bransfield.
The Diocese of Wheeling Charleston purchased this single family home next to the Catholic Charities Neighborhood Center. The home has been completely renovated which took a little over a year with the help of a grant from the Community Foundation of the Ohio Valley. 

The home is meant to help the family get on their feet with work, food and even help in child care.  People we talked to said  they were very impressed with how the house looks on the inside and out and believe it will be a big help for homeless families.

"It brings a strong message, that again Wheeling has a heart. That we're working hard to work with people who have the least, and people who have homelessness. And just working to make Wheeling a better community," said Wheeling Mayor, Andy McKenzie.

The hospitality house is designed to help one single family at a time for up to six months. The Catholic Charity center is located on 18th Street in Wheeling. If you'd like to find out more about the new home, catholic charities invite you to drop by or call them at 304-232-7157.
