January Jones with Dottie's House Carol A. Wolfe is unquestionably a hero. Through her New Jersey-based non-profit Dottie’s House, she has created a safe haven for hundreds of women who felt they had no options and no place to go to escape the daily hell they faced in what should have been their very own sanctuary - their home. In 1999, after reading a number of articles about the epidemic of domestic violence (of which her mother was a victim) committed against women, Wolfe launched Dottie’s House – a transitional housing facility designed to aid women and children who have survived domestic violence. It gives them an alternative to staying in the dangerous “hamster wheel” of violence and emotional toxicity with their abuser by providing them with an affordable housing option through their own private apartments.
