It was two years ago this month that the non profit Women of Worth Organization opened Hetty’s Haven as a safe haven where women could go to escape from domestic violence and abuse.

Next Week Women of Worth will open a new home, Kelly’s Kottage for transitional women leaving Hetty’s Haven but not quite ready to go out on their own.
