I recently attended the retirement of Starr Peardon, founder of Talitha Koum. Peardon has used the organization to take in troubled women who've battled drugs and alcohol. She has successfully turned around many of their lives:
Starr Peardon understands that people come as they are and God loves them no matter where they are in life.

She came to this understanding after cleaning herself up from drugs and alcohol with the love of God through the Sisters of the Child of Jesus. Peardon shared this love with other misguided women through her organization Talitha Koum for many years.
