At St. Ann’s, they are converting an older, institutional-like section of the children’s residential wing into a warm, comfortable living space.

Approximately 230 children ranging from 2 months to 12 years old who have been removed from their homes due to abuse, neglect or abandonment are provided with compassionate care and a safe place to live and learn at St. Ann’s each year.
