CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Haven of Portage County is opening its doors to the area’s homeless starting April 19.

The new rescue mission and warming center can accommodate 64 men, women and children and, according to its website, “provides holistic healing through the power of the gospel.”

Opening the facility took years of planning and happened with help from a large fundraising campaign and a network of partners.
