Rhode Island homeless shelter acquires new facility, to start renovations


MIDDLETOWN, Rhode Island — A homeless shelter that has been in Rhode Island for 30 years is expanding in an effort to support more families.

Middletown lawmakers were at Lucy's Hearth on Monday to celebrate the acquisition of a new facility on Valley Road.

The organization provides 24-hour assistance and serves as a transition shelter for homeless woman and children.

The shelter has been housed in a former convent on West Main Street. The new building is expected to be up and running by next spring.
