Meet Sylvia Anthony and follow her trials, triumphs and successes in her new memoir, Sylvia's Haven. Named after the non-profit organization Anthony founded for poor, homeless and abused women and children. Sylvia's Haven serves s a testimonial of her life, faith and efforts to help others. Beginning with her birth in 1929 and continuing to the present day. Anthony recounts a painful childhood, divorce and the struggles she faced as a single mother. Sylvia's Haven candidly details the abuse Anthony witnessed and was subjected to growing up. She married at age 18, "This would prove to be a terrible mistake," she admits. Having been taught that a person should only be marry once, she stayed married for more than twelve years before divorcing. Ten years later, she remarried to a man named Rick, and her life changed dramatically. Anthony experienced what she calls a "miraculous intervention" after a near-fatal car accident and she and Rick became born-again Christians. Together, they were finally able to achieve her dream of opening a shelter for women and children. On January 25, 1987, Life for the Little Ones (LLO), Inc., was itself born. Rick began net-working among other Christian pro-life groups, introducing him and Sylvia, explaining what they planned to do. One of these groups was Pregnancy Help, a referral agency. It was a Catholic outreach group that would talk to desperate pregnant women and offer them a solution to their dilemma. Pregnancy Help would contact shelters that were willing to house and help them through their time of need. One such shelter was Friends of the Unborn. Rick and Sylvia visited the two-year-old operation and spoke at length with the owner. They were also given of the rules and regulations followed by Friends of the Unborn and the occupants of the homes. These would prove invaluable in the future. The foundation for LLO's shelter was now laid. Anthony details the many aspects of founding and maintaining Life for the Little Ones, which changed its name to Sylvia's Haven, Inc. in 1994. She also shares the pain of losing husband Rick to cancer just weeks after incorporating their shelter. Her friend Tony, a man she describes "love of my life," plays an important role throughout the book. Today at age 80, Sylvia Anthony still operates Sylvia's Haven, Inc., and to. date has housed 1034 women and children. For over 23 years, she has devoted her life to helping those less fortunate and overcome numerous obstacles along the way. She still continues her work.
