For Julianne Frankhouser the dedication Saturday of the Guiding Light Teen Maternity Home was the culmination of three years work.
When the facility opens early next year it can house up to five teenage girls.
Frankhouser says there is a big need in the Lima community for this program.
Lima mayor David Berger, who was present at the dedication, commended Frankhouser's effort.
Frankhouser says they still need volunteer housemothers to help run the home.
As of right now there's still a need to help fund the home.
