PLANO — Less than 24 hours after News 8 broadcast a story detailing plumbing problems at the only domestic violence shelter in Collin County, Hope's Door has new hope.

The Mary Kay Foundation announced Tuesday it will provide a $25,000 emergency grant to the shelter so repairs can be made quickly.

"We hope that by providing this emergency grant, it will give the shelter the option to keep its doors open and all beds available to those who so desperately need help,” said foundation spokeswoman Anne Crews in a written statement.

Hope's Door has been forced to turn away new clients until the plumbing leak can be repaired.

"We are overwhelmed with gratitude and excitement," said Hope's Door CEO Pat Tosi in a written statement.
