Killeen's first homeless shelter, Friends In Crisis is gearing up to celebrate it's one year anniversary.

The renovated church has served as a place that many residents of CTX call home. Serving as a warm and safe place the facility is nothing but a blessing to many.

Over the last few months Friends In Crisis has increased in resident numbers. From Jan 1. to Oct 31, 830 clients used the shelter for at least one night and a great percentage of them were military veterans.

With the holiday season vastly approaching the need for supplies are at an all time high. Items needed at this time include: hygiene products, non-perishable unopened food, laundry and cleaning supplies, gently used clothing and shoes for both adults and children.

Your donations would be appreciated!
