washer dryer tv refrigeratorLast week, Sanctuary for Life, our housing program for homeless, pregnant women, suffered losses -- one after another. First, the refrigerator went out. Then, the washer AND dryer went kaput. Then just as the women were settling in to watch some TV, POOF -- it broke too. What are the chances of that happening?

Right now, SFL is home to 6 pregnant women. This program is funded almost 100% by donations so the budget is tight. Please help us continue to make this house a home for them and donate now. Designate your gift to "Sanctuary for Life." Thank you.
