ROANOKE (WSLS 10) - The Salvation Army leaders have settled into their new roles and are looking to the first project at the helm of the Roanoke Corps.

Lieutenant Andy and Captain Monica Seiler have been on the job for about six weeks.

Up first, a renovation of the Turning Point women's shelter thanks to a grant from the Women's Foundation and private donors.

"A lot of women in those situations haven't really had a place that's safe many times in their entire life and so we want to develop a place that," Lt. Andy Seiler explained.

Come this fall, the Seilers will help to establish a three to five year strategic plan for the Salvation Army that will include better partnerships and collaborations in the community.
