Magdalene is a two-year sanctuary for women with a criminal history of prostitution and drug abuse. It provides safety, discipline, and “an unconditional love that the women have never known — it has apparently worked wonders.”

The community has grown from one to four houses, plus a new beauty-products business where a number of the women work. More than 50 women have turned their lives around – to be “clean,” hopeful, and productive. . . Today’s Christian Science Monitor alerts us to this terrific news.

Magdalene enjoys a 87 percent success rate for its residents and illustrates at least five of the seven values represented in our good news philosophy: Responsibility, Integrity, Compassion, Cooperation and Generosity. Donate to their Capital Campaign, or learn more about the program here.
