January Jones-Dottie’s House-Safe Haven
Carol A. Wolfe is unquestionably a hero. Through her New Jersey-based non-profit Dottie’s House, she has created a safe haven for hundreds of women who felt they had no options and no place to go to escape the daily hell they faced in what should have been their very own sanctuary – their home.
In 1999, after reading a number of articles about the epidemic of domestic violence (of which her mother was a victim) committed against women, Wolfe launched Dottie’s House – a transitional housing facility designed to aid women and children who have survived domestic violence.
It gives them an alternative to staying in the dangerous “hamster wheel” of violence and emotional toxicity with their abuser by providing them with an affordable housing option through their own private apartments.
Most of us have faced the struggle of how to feed a child back to health who is sick with the flu or a cold. Some have dealt with nursing loved ones who have had ear infections, stomach bugs, chickenpox or bronchitis. Now, too many are now facing the difficult challenge of how to feed children with cancer; how to feed them while they are living through their treatment. That’s really tough. We are really excited to announce the launch of the HealthBarn USA Foundation’s program, “Healing Meals.” Founder, Stacey Antine, RDN (author: Appetite for Life) will explain how this program provides healing meals to children fighting cancer and their families. She will share her recipes so everyone facing feeding those with an illness can benefit from her nutritional wisdom and culinary expertise. You won’t want to miss this time with Stacey!
