FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - One area woman inspired by a story she saw here on Indiana’s NewsCenter is making a difference in the community.

Pastor Patti Jimerson says after watching our report on the increasing need for women's shelters, she opened "Vessel House," a home providing shelter for single women.

Jimerson says the facility is home to six-women who are recovering from life hindering problems.

Executive Director of the Vessel House Patti Jimerson says, “It's been one of the most rewarding things I've ever known. I have 17 women now that actually do qualify to come in here and currently we only have two beds. So the need is still great.”

For more information on vessel house call 557-6183.
