This new women's center sounds great! As a woman at midlife I can certainly relate to "juggling too much" and being blindsided by life's changes. More than once I have thought Dorothy Parker's words, "What fresh hell is this?" I look forward to checking out the center when it opens. Way to go Katie!

I would suggest that any women planning to go to that part of town , especially in the evening, pack a pistol also or risk being stabbed or shot in the head, as happened on Sunday a block away

Is Katie accepting phone calls or emails re: volunteering before the opening in 2009 or other questions? If so, please email me at with a phone number or email. Thank you. Mary
