"The Lotus House Women’s Shelter is a unique resource center and residential facility serving homeless women and infants in the heart of the historic African American district of Overtown, Miami, an area suffering from extreme poverty in one of the poorest large cities in the United States. Lotus House provides free transitional housing and wrap around support services with access to a wide range of resources to approximately 130 women and infants annually. With a holistic, gender specific and innovative format, Lotus House seeks to empower women to improve the quality of their lives on every level, achieve greater self sufficiency and transition to permanent homes off the streets.

Lotus House serves women who are homeless, whether due to domestic violence, untreated medical or mental illness, disability or economic reasons. The facility houses up to 50 women and children at a time and includes a special maternity wing for women who are homeless and pregnant and their infants. Women come to Lotus House through referrals from homeless outreach, shelters, safe houses, rehab centers, prisons, hospitals and courts, as well as the streets. For many, it is a shelter of last resort, as temporary shelters do not afford them an opportunity to address untreated medical and mental illnesses, obtain work or benefits, and save the funds needed to truly break the cycle of homelessness."

    Give octo-mom the address.

    Awesome! Wish I had something like that when I was a single mom :)

    I've decided to give up all my donations to charity and groups like this, now that Barack Obama is president and has promised to take care of everyone

    So yesterday you think the octo-mom should have all of her children taken away and today you want us to give money to support women who have no home or means of support and are single, pregnant or have babies?

    So clarify this for me…how many children with no fathers, no home and no means of support is it okay for a woman to have before they become not worthy of charity?

    At first glance i thought that was Octo-Mom

    Ship this TRASH back to where it came from? We can't afford to pay their way anymore? If they kept their legs shut they might not be in this situation. The little oinkers??

    so you support these women who cannot take care of themselves or their babies, but look down on suleman who cannot afford to take care of herself and her 8 million babies. double standard . . .

    And while we are at let's blame the women for 'spreading her legs' - last time i checked it takes more than ovaries to make a baby.

    Re: shrobi1 – Word shrobi1. It doesn't matter how fertile the earth is, if a farmer doesn't want crops, he doesn't plant seeds.

    How do people compare these women to OctoTrash? She PLANNED ALL 14 PREGNANCIES IN PETRI DISHES!!!! Maybe some of these women planned some of their pregnancies too, but the parasite, there is no doubt at all! Does anyone listen when they talk about birth control in high school health class?!
