ARDMORE, Okla. (KTEN) -- An Ardmore based non-profit is looking to help more people.

Community Youth Services of Southern Oklahoma provides shelter and counseling for young people in Carter and Love counties. 

Through donations over the course of three years, the organization is developing a new facility with a price tag of nearly $6 million.

"We will have more than twice the space for counseling services," said executive director Kaylyn Weldon-Gary. "We will be able to hire additional counselors. We will also be able to take in additional children in our emergency shelter. Once we have completed this phase one, then we will immediately be working on a transitional living facility."

The new building is located next to Hardy Murphy Coliseum.
