SMITH COUNTY (KYTX) - Plans are now being finalized to build a brand new shelter for neglected teenage girls in Smith County. Right now the county has 60 shelter beds for foster boys, but only 19 for foster girls. That's why faith-based organization Hope Haven is building a place for girls to go.
There will also be a fund raising concert at the Liberty Theater in Tyler on October 11. There will be music by Stevie Jo from The Voice, The McGills, and Casey Rivers. There will be a silent auction and all proceeds will go to Hope Haven.
