Future Home for Women Veterans Gets $40k Worth of Help To Open
Welcome to Robin's Home in the city of Butler, Pennsylvania.
Welcome to Robin's Home in the city of Butler, Pennsylvania. It's the dream of one woman who served her country in the United States Army and now works with veterans on a daily basis in her day job.

Mary Chitwood just won a major victory when the city granted her zoning request that will allow the home to open. Mary's good news doesn't stop there. Bill Kennihan owns a local plumbing, heating and air business and says he had to get involved when he heard what Mary was doing and why.

Here's the story behind Robin's Home and the major work that needs to be done before it can open to homeless female veterans and their families:
Also worth some major recognition here is Dennis Baglier who is a local car dealer. He bought the house and turned it over to Mary to transform it into Robin's Home.
