ADA, Okla. -- For people in Ada who have nowhere to go, the door to MaMa T's B&B is open.

"MaMa T's is a 40-bed homeless shelter," director Crystal Lamb explained. "We house men, women, and children. We take them in and help them get back on their feet."

The shelter is celebrating its first anniversary. For the people who work there, it's a joy to see people get back on their feet.

"It's a gift to be able to see people come in and work their way back up into independent members of society," Lamb said.

MaMa T's helps people get a fresh start at life.

"We're able to get them rapid re-housed... get them jobs... help them get drivers licenses," said Lamb. "We're helping them build families and homes."

And the shelter is asking for your help.

"Come on up to the door," Lamb said. "Come talk to me. There's plenty of stuff that we have available for anyone that wants to help volunteer or bring items of clothing, food."

MaMa T's, at 222 East 12th Street in Ada, is holding an open house and silent auction on the August 16, with all proceeds going back to the shelter.
