The Lighthouse Mission will hold a ceremony to mark the opening of its second shelter.

The event is scheduled for 11 a.m. Oct. 8 at 500 L Casillas Boulevard, said Richard Gomez, administrator for the mission.

“We’re going to be able to house mothers and children in the old shelter, and house single people in the new one,” Gomez said.

The new shelter will house 40, but Gomez said getting an exact number for overall capacity is difficult because it depends on the size of every family that seeks help.
