Our Lady's Inn
April 30, 2011

One of the most worthwhile charities in existence, this emergency shelter helps homeless women who are pregnant.
Not only does Our Lady's Inn provide food & shelter for them and their children, but they also provide assistance with learning life's necessary basic skills such as employment and money management.
