A new facility helping women suffering with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder is coming to Western New York January 10th.

The $5.4 million project is one of only eight across the Nation.

It will feature 12 rooms with private bathrooms.

This new facility called Center For H.O.P.E. is not only unique because it's one of 8 residential treatment facilities for women suffering with PTSD across the nation but also because it's taking the extra steps to make women feel at ease.

Hardwood floors, tile, crown molding and additional features like a fireplace make the facility almost spa like.

It's a big change from their former six bedroom center.

On top of the added features, the 10,000 square-foot building contains rooms for psychiatry, medical exams and social work. A way for women to get the treatment they need without ever having to leave their new home away from home.

If you know a veteran in need of help, you can contact your local VA office or call the Veteran Crisis Line at 1-800-273-8255.
