The building has been vacant for the past 16 years until last year when St. Mary’s Health System donated the building to a group developing Sophia’s House, a project of The Center for Wisdom’s Women that will provide a long-term residential community of hope and healing for women who have experienced sex-trafficking/exploitation, prison or addiction. It is scheduled to open in the fall. Sun Journal photo by Russ Dillingham
