This is part of the dining area outside the kitchen in the home. Many church groups, individuals and others helped get the home complete, a process that took two years from the time McKeva Kinard-Shelton received the house as a donation.
The House of Sweet Transition has the capacity to house 12 women comfortably with several rooms, a living space, and kitchen area.
