Transcript 6 MONTROSE VOICE / SEPTEMBER 20, 1985 Help Needed for Repairs at Shelter Rev. Gracie Lee, director of A Place in the Sun, a shelter for physically and socially battered women, has issued an appeal for help in making repairs to the facility. Lee suffered injuries in a fall in January and has been unable to do the necessary physical work on the 10-room house located at 212 Fargo. She and her partner, Lynn Herrick, moved into the house last December. "This place has gone begging for fixing," she says, "and we're tired of it. "We have done this (sheltering battered women) for two and a half years," says Lee, "and that's called staying power. And, six months of this has been 'injured time.'" She explains, "The people we help can help us only within their limits. So please don't say 'Where are all the people who have lived here. Why aren't they helping?' They are finally helping themselves, and come back here for counseling when they need it. They come back proudly showing their new clothes and fine jobs. We're proud of our kids! "And yes, we've had people who had to use our services after they had helped us." Lee continues, "I need my energies to work with the people and to do our arts. We will use the arts to help make the money we so sorely need." Lee and Herrick have reopened the sound studio they had before moving to Houston. Their group Sister- Song, which includes Clara Kern and Cindy Funderburke, is already producing its first two albums in the studio, and ib currently selling a live "vintage" tape of its June 8 concert. They also do demo tapes, sheet music and lead sheets. "The people in this place get healed from watching this process and helping with it," says Lee. "But the place that we all have to live and work in is uglier than sin. We need our physical plant fixed." Lee and Herrick asks, "Will you help paint, dry wall, spackle, clean, plumb, or electrify. Don't just say 'keep up the good work.' Help us keep up the good work." Rev. Gracie Lee and Lynn Herrick may be reached by calling 522-7695.
