A shelter for young refugees is coming to the Lehigh Valley.

KidsPeace has announced it's working with the Office of Refugee Resettlement to offer a shelter program for kids who come into the country without their parents.

Officials say the new shelter will offer the children a safe haven until they can be placed in permanent homes.

KidsPeace says it will provide them with daily education as well as counseling.
