The Knoxville Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors held a ribbon cutting at the new Helping Hands Crisis Shelter Friday morning. The shelter, located above Helping Hands Food Pantry, has eight bedrooms, a common area, and a washer and dryer. Chuck Galeazzi with Helping Hands says that the shelter will be available for those who need transitional housing after a major life crisis. Already some of the bedrooms are being filled. Galeazzi and Pastor Bob Smith, the director of Helping Hands, thank the community for their incredible support, saying that the shelter was only possible through their help and the Holy Spirit.
