CARTERET COUNTY, N.C. (WNCT)–The first women’s shelter in Carteret County is now open and ready to help serve women in need.

It’s part of the latest outreach effort by the Hope Mission.

Director of the women’s shelter, Terri Mace, was once homeless herself and says running the shelter is part of her mission to give back for the help that she received.

“These women need people to love them, they need people to stop looking down on them, or looking like they’re chewing gum stuck on the bottom of their feet or turning their head when they pass them on the road,” Mace said.
