A ribbon cutting was held today for a newly renovated emergency shelter in Stamford.
Pacific House's renovation project was funded through a grant from the Connecticut Department of Housing.
Shelter officials say they had to move people from their building and into hotels during the height of the pandemic.
Pacific House used the time it was vacant to do renovations and to establish COVID protocols.
People can now stay at the shelter again, but officials say the goal is to end homelessness by finding people permanent housing.
