GLEN DALE, W.Va. (WTRF) – The community embraced their mission for years, to open a hospitality house in Marshall County.
7News got a first look inside Kathy’s House in Glen Dale after the organization welcomed its first guest.
They still need help and support to be able to provide this space to families in need. So, Kathy’s House is bringing back its fourth annual 5-K race and steak fry next month.
In the spirit of how the family used to gather at the home of Kathy Criswell-Martin, who is the inspiration behind the non-profit, the group met to plan at the new home.
It got very emotional because we have worked hard for this, but to see the community grasping onto it now and really understand what we’re doing and what the purpose is, it has come full circle.Jane Criswell, Kathy’s House Foundation
