Andrea Kelly, visits Margaret’s Village to talk about domestic violence.

Andrea Kelly, ex-wife of singer R. Kelly, came to Margaret’s Village this week to talk about domestic violence. Domestic abuse is one of the leading causes of homelessness for women, and Ms. Kelly’s dialogue with and staff demonstrated the shared experiences that those experiencing and escaping abuse confront. She is an inspirational speaker! (And…Andrea who grew up on the South Side of Chicago, actually attended school at St. Carthage. Yes, it is THAT St. Carthage which now is the site of Margaret’s Village!)
