A Turning Point

Paula Newman-Skomski with Noreen Laggert, Peoria Home's Executive Director.

Our speaker at yesterday's meeting was Paula Newman-Skomski, the founder of Peoria Home. Paula talked about prostitution and trafficking in Snohomish County and the lack of assistance available to help women over 18.  Peoria Home addresses this by providing long-term shelter and an array of support services. 

Peoria Home just acquired its first home which opened last month in Everett. I'm sure we'll hear more great news in the future. Interested in helping out? Peoria Home needs volunteers - see for more information.
