Updated:

LINCOLNTON, N.C.,None - The Hesed House of Hope, a homeless shelter in Lincolnton, needs funding to complete its building.

The project is about two-thirds completed and organizers said they need $90,000 to finish. In addition, they need to raise the money within the next two weeks to complete construction by January, when extreme cold sets in.

The 4,500 square-foot building will house men's and women's living quarters, a playroom for children and a private family room. It will hold 35 people.

An open house is scheduled for 3 p.m. Sunday to gain support and raise money. Several churches and organizations are assisting with the event.
