Providing a restorative opportunity to those struggling with addiction

June 27, 30 years ago, Medical Mission Sister, Margaret McKenna and a colleague purchased a broken-down shell of a house in North Philly, with the vision of providing a restorative opportunity to those struggling with addiction. Three decades later the program, New Jerusalem, has five buildings that house 20-25 recovering addicts, men and women who find success through the holistic community-focused model.
