I first met the ladies of Maggie's Place at the very beginning. Young ladies who had jsut finished college and wanted to contribute their energy to helping others. Their courage to do tis with littlefunding and support enlisted the help of parents and willing volunteers to build a hostiptality center for women who were pregnamt and without a place to live. I was one of the many hands on builders. I was also asled as a psychologist,to provide some guidance for the programs taht were planned for the residents. Maggie's Place was not only a residence, but a home where guidance was provided for the women to build a life for themselves and their children. The support that continues for the women who have benefited from Maggie's Place is also astonding. The result is a family of women who have benefited from this program and who have given back to others wh come to the program. Dr. Bart
