Sister Virginia chose to name this house Stephen’s Place for two reasons:   Stephen had planted the seed and St. Stephen was the first Christian in prison who was endowed with both courage and wisdom. Stephen’s Place offers an opportunity where these virtues can be lived freely and responsibly. It would be for all the “Stephens” who have dreams and a willingness to make them happen but lack the necessary resources to make them a reality.

The video below details the history of Stephen’s Place.
