To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Charlotte Rescue Mission women's Dove's Nest program, the facility will hold an open house.

The open house will be Feb. 26, noon-2 p.m. at 1814 Euclid Ave., near Dilworth.

The public can get a first-hand look at how Dove's Nest is helping women recover from addiction.

"It's a chance for everyone to see how these women are moving from a life of homelessness, incarceration, the street to becoming contributing members of society" says Rev. Tony Marciano, Executive Director of the Charlotte Rescue Mission. "And when they see all of the wonderful things God is doing at Dove's Nest, we hope it will inspire them to lend a hand a helping hand by volunteering or with donations."

Charlotte Rescue Mission is building a new Dove's Nest facility on an 11-acre site on West Boulevard. It will have an increased bed count from 12 to 120, including 30 beds for children. The facility should be complete by August.
