come on in...

Anne and Katy have had a lot going on at The Joe Torre Safe at Home Foundation over the past couple months.

The Foundation opened a Margaret's Place, our school based "safe rooms" where kids can go talk with a counselor and each other about domestic violence and other tough stuff going on in their live, in New Jersey. This is the 11th Margaret's Place in the tri-state area.

This opening was especially neat because we had a huge assembly for the kids and Joe and Bernie Williams came to speak. The kids were beside themselves with excitement. It was a pretty cool morning.













This is Margaret's Place, named after Joe's mom who was a victim of domestic violence.

These rooms are really inviting and have so far proven to be a cool place in the school where kids really like to hang out.















The kids made tons of signs for the big opening!















Annie welcomes you!
