TEMPLE - The Salvation Army McLane Center of Hope has broken ground on its new homeless shelter. The 22,000-sf building will be located in Temple on the corner of West Ave. G and 9th St, providing emergency shelter, food and rehabilitation.

Salvation Army services including life skills training and job skill training will also be offered.

This facility will be the first Bell County homeless shelter, the only one found between Waco and Austin, and will accommodate up to 100 at a time.

The facility will also provide the underprivileged within the community with clothing, food, counseling, utility and rent assistance and medical evaluations.

There are 5,000 facilities like the Center of Hope in existence across the U.S. The facilities served more than 30 million people last year.

Temple's McLane family pledged a gift of $1 million to the project, which significantly helped the Salvation Army come closer to their $4.9 million goal.
