My eyes have been opened to the frustration and needs of the underprivileged and to the unfairness of the criminal justice system. The Benedict Center gets it! The staff provides programs that educate, empower, and direct women to get out of a seemingly impossible hole and get on with their lives. Impressive!

The Great!
