The Sisters of the Good Shepherd spent a coupla decades holding underage girls in unsanitary, bleak, and degrading condition
I have heard all about this. While I don't begrudge someone helping the "underprivileged" (god that word is loaded), I do begrudge the assumption that these people would "fail and become tragedies" without the intervention of those of us that are soooooo together. People would be amazed what I have learned from these families and kids since making the decision to be a social worker and the last thing they need is people assuming they can't do for themselves. A little help here and there is fine, but that is a safer way to look at it.
