As a social worker, it was not uncommon for Margaret to encounter families that were victimized and children who were abused. Margaret understood the variety of circumstances wome face.
Margie's wish was to create an opportunity for funds to be available to provide a basis for women and their children to become self-sufficient, ensuring that women would regain their lives and become vital members of society, even when other resources are unavailable.
