Power Trip: Sophia's House
Sophia's House project - Restoring a historic building to create a place where women can restore their lives.
Are you looking for an opportunity to make a difference? Do you care about helping women overcome the odds against them? Do you like historic buildings or do you want to be a part of making Lewiston a better place?
Klara Tammany, Executive Director, Center for Wisdom's Women and Sarah Barton of Americorps VISTA will be discussing what leads women to be trafficked or exploited, addicted and incarcerated, about the obstacles they face in restoring their lives, and how Sophia's House will support women in overcoming the odds against them. Attendees will have the opportunity to tour the beautiful old convent before restoration, and learn about the plans for the building and the community and project it will house.
Please feel free to bring a lunch.
