"One day at a time" says a little sign in the living room here at Our New Beginnings. This huge Victorian house with purple trim on Hoyt Street in Portland, Ore., is home to 27 women, some of whom have never had a home before. They are ex-offenders trying to turn their lives around. "Our New Beginnings meant life for me rather than living death," says Rosemary Popp, a former resident who is now a case manager on ONB's staff.
