Kicking off their brand-new season of Fixer Upper, beloved and quirky Chip and Joanna Gaines give back to their Texas community by remodeling a local girls’ emergency shelter.

The husband and wife duo are no strangers to acts of kindness and paying it forward, and yet this house flip is set to have long-term benefits.

Their “” created a sense of community and home for the “strong” girls at the shelter, giving them a place to be the world changers Joanna knows they can be.

“This story will always have a special place in our hearts,” Joanna writes in an Instagram post, saying she is “so proud of this community of women.”

The 3,900-square-foot space has seven bedrooms, three full bathrooms and three half bathrooms, Insider reports. The renovation was an extended family affair—with the helping hands of Joanna’s sister Jenny, who volunteers at the shelter; Barbara, who runs the shelter and Trasha, a former resident of the shelter who now works there.

Barbara said the mission of the shelter is to “give each girl a chance to succeed.”

The full renovation, photos of which can be viewed on the Magnolia Network blog, allows the girls fleeing from often dangerous situations to feel at home in their temporary residence. The Gaineses say they put a lot of thought into “finding ways to make this facility feel safe” for the residents and to “serve as a haven.”
