What was your dream? We all had a dream growing up- who we wanted to be, what we wanted to do, and who we wanted to do it with. Oftentimes there are obstacles that keep our dreams from becoming our reality.  At McKemie Place, we help unaccompanied homeless women break down those barriers by connecting them with resources and opportunities so they can start to dream again because new beginnings are never out of reach.
