First Bleg

Via Amy Welborn:

On the evening of September 13, 2005, the Pregnancy Help Center of Milwaukee burned to the ground. The cause of the fire is currently under investigation. Regardless of the fire’s source, this small but important institution will not be able to function for some time. I am writing to request, on its behalf, thoughts, prayers and support.

For some twenty years, the Pregnancy Help Center has provided counselling and health services, food, clothing and baby materials for pregnant women otherwise ignored by society or informed that their unborn children are unsupportable and therefore unwanted. The Center is located in a poorer district of the city and its clientele is predominantly African-American women and new immigrants. Often having to deal with abuse, neglect and poverty in their homes, these women and their children have relied upon the Center for all manner of support and guidance.


Donations can be sent to “The Pregnancy Help Center of Milwaukee”, P.O. Box 1074, Brookfield, WI, 53008-1074

We know the people who run Pregnancy Help Center, and it is a VERY worthwhile cause.

I've got a couple of guesses of who or whom might have burned the Pregnancy Help Center down...
