TROY, N.Y. -- Crews raised up a sign on the Unity House’s new community resource center called "The Front Door."
The Unity House CEO says the center offers a bunch of services to people in need. It includes a meal program, housing and employment training.
"Whether it be help with food over the weekend, eviction prevention or utilities shut off. Or they need clothing, household items or have a child who is mental ill or an adult mental ill or someone experiencing domestic violence. It really doesn't matter. We are going to try and find them help," said Christopher Burke, CEO Unity House.
Burke says last year the center helped more than 900 victims of domestic violence. And this year, they've already helped more than 1,000. The City of Troy was also recently awarded with nearly $300,000 in grant money from the Department of Justice.
