Representatives from St. Louis County, Range Transitional Housing, IRRRB, the City of Virginia and others will join together Tuesday in Virginia for a groundbreaking for a new shelter that will serve families experiencing homelessness in northern St. Louis County.

The new shelter will provide short-term housing for four families at a time, and is expected to open in the spring of 2024. Funding for the project comes from St. Louis County ARPA funds and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG), COVID funds; and the IRRRB.
