These girls are all under 18 years of age and have the responsibilities of a grown adult. Both parents have died from AIDS. Many are taking care of three or four siblings, the house, cooking, going to school and working! Yet they have a smile and can break out into a song and dance with little coaxing!
It was not always this way. Most of these girls when they arrived at St. Lucy Center with their siblings were starving with no place to live and no education.
You can help us in so many ways.

God bless you,
