Kansas women turn old hospital into home for unwed mothers

KSAL StaffJune 26, 2016

Two women are turning an old southern Kansas hospital into an oasis for unwed mothers during and after their pregnancies.

Miranda Allen and Brenda Myers paid $1 for the old Kiowa hospital after voters decided to build a new one. They are transforming the facility into what they’ve named Project Pink House, which will take in its first resident in mid-July.

The two breast cancer survivors say residents will take steps to better themselves while they’re there, including doing volunteer work and attending classes.

Allen and Myers figure women who need them will find their way to the town of fewer than 1,000 residents a few miles from the Oklahoma border.

The Hutchinson News (http://bit.ly/28RYfhr) reports they’re willing to buy bus tickets for applicants who need help getting there.
