CINCINNATI -- A few weeks ago, Todd Halsell was seeking warmth at Shelter House.

He was experiencing homelessness then.

Since January, he's gotten help to start a new life, with an apartment in Westwood.

And a closing hotel is helping furnish it.

Downtown's Garfield Suites Hotel is being converted into apartments.

With the help of New Life Furniture , Halsell was the recipient of some of the hotel's furniture.

"It's a blessing," he said. "It's like I won the showcase at 'The Price is Right' or something."

Watch the video above to see more from Halsell's home and how New Life, a furniture bank, works to help people in our community.
