TOMS RIVER - A charity group that lost everything in a fire may have found a new home.

Hometown Heroes, a charity dedicated to helping neighbors, was made homeless after a fire ripped through several businesses in the heart of Toms River. Since the fire, the group was working out of the president's home.

The group says they may have found a new space in a historic house only blocks from the old office. With the donated space, the charity that has helped thousands says it hopes it can help thousands more.

"It's going to be great to get some normalcy back for the organization," says Jennifer Barna, the Executive Director of Hometown Heroes. "Since the day of the fire, we have not stopped working."

Members of the group say they hope to be fully set up in their new location by Monday.
