An event this weekend provides an opportunity to help some women in need.

Proceeds from Friday night’s event “An Evening Of Hope” will benefit several local organizations that help women in need. One of those organizations is Transitional Housing, which helps women and children transform their lives.

Among them is Marlena Smith. She is happy to have her own place. “When I came here it was such a welcoming atmosphere. They took everything off of you, the burden. They make you feel so comfortable and just welcome,” she said.

Smith has been living at Transitional Housing for six months. Before that she was living in a homeless shelter after she was laid off from her job. The college graduate is able to get her life back together here. Transitional Housing provides a host of programs, including financial literacy, life management skills and help with resume writing. “They offer so many things to get us stable and on our feet and heading in the right direction,” Smith said.
