Heavy rain in Jamaica caused landslides around the island last month. A landslide took out a portion of the road in Gordon Town on the way up the hill where Sophie's Place is located.
While there are efforts taking place to fix the road, all Sophie's Place residents have been moved to our Mary's Child apostolate for better access to medical care.
Sophie's Place is home to 22 children and adults with disabilities. The facility includes a therapy room, laundry and kitchen, play area, and chapel. There is a basic school for children from the local community which provides them with an early childhood education and includes two meals each day.
