ROANOKE (WSLS 10) - A Roanoke homeless shelter is getting a face lift.

Renovations are underway at the Roanoke Area Ministries (RAM) House, which provides a day-shelter for people in need. The repairs come after a pipe burst in late February, closing the shelter for 10 days due to flooding.

"We've got to do a lot of the renovations around our guests which is the challenge," said Roanoke RAM House Marketing Manager David Tate. "There is light at the end of the tunnel because by the end of April we should be back in full swing with no interruptions after that."

The changes are expected to take three to four weeks to complete.
