BIG RAPIDS — It was an eye opener, this open house at the WISE shelter home in Big Rapids recently. And it tends to be a heart opener as well. For guests who visited during the open house, but even more so for many of the women and children who somehow find their way to the special home.
Usually, it takes a crisis to continue what one termed as her journey “through hell” to finally get to the WISE Shelter. She said she will never regret being there. It was a safe place for both her and her children, and it gave her mind time to make new decisions and learn to develop better choices for her own life and their’s.
