Sonia Turgeon, a staff assistant for the Center for Wisdom’s Women, gives a tour of one of the new rooms for residents of Sophia’s House, a new residential program for women opening in Lewiston. The residents in the program, survivors of trafficking, exploitation or prison, have the opportunity to help build a bed for the residents who follow them using Healthy Homeworks’ Build-a-Bed program. Women will stay an average of two years in the program. Andree Kehn/Sun Journal
