THE STORY:

 

Seven years ago I had the incredible privelidge of starting to work with Rose Haven, a sanctuary for homeless, abused and prostituted women, now serving over 80 women a day.  My pride and joy is the clothing shop, where I strive to uphold each women's induvidual style and dignity.  I want every women who walks through our shop to know that they are extraordinary, beautiful and one of a kind.  I am participating in this event to honor my 96 year old Mother, Dorothy Hazel Swarner and my already in heaven mother-in-law Alta Freida James.
