Shoebox Story: Holy Ground

Tags: , , , ,

If you’re following the Shoebox Stories, this is number three in the series. The photo that evoked these memories is of Dottie Wobb, our founding Executive Director, taking a phone call from our first client, before the buildout of that first little center in Davie was even completed! God showed us clearly that there was a need as the news about a place to help women quickly spread throughout the county. In 1990, Broward County reported over 8,000 abortions – and that number would grow rapidly …
