"Come on, everybody, don't be afraid of getting your hands dirty," City Council member Marilynn Poe called out Tuesday as she braced part of a wooden frame. In a community gathering reminiscent of old-fashioned barn raisings, about 40 volunteers, benefactors and city dignitaries helped raise the walls of what will be home to five young women and their children. The two-story building is an annex to Precious Life Shelter, an emergency and transitional refuge for mothers and pregnant women.

Eight months pregnant and running away from an abusive boyfriend, Donna found refuge two months ago at Precious Life, a temporary shelter for homeless pregnant women in Los Alamitos. At that time, she was certain she would give her baby up for adoption once it was born. Now, as 22-day-old Brandon sleeps peacefully on her lap, she is certain she won't give him up. She feels energized now and ready to face the world again.
