Frequently Asked Questions
what made you want to build the safe house?
RMM artist Nigel “Legin” Anderson asked Drs. Marcia Ball and Jennie Cerullo what’s next for them at the Orphan Care Center, and they expressed a desire to build a Safe House that their youth can flee to if they find themselves in a dangerous situation. They believed it to be a dream, and three to five years away at the earliest. When Legin and Sinai returned home from South Africa, the thought of the Safe House wouldn’t leave their minds.
