Barbara helped many of Bridgeport’s most needy. She operated The Joy Center Church Ministries from the same building complex that housed the once grand, Palace and Majestic Theatres.
The “Joy Center” offered daycare services, evangelical religious services, drug and alcohol treatment, spiritual guidance, and sometimes just a safe place to spend the night. This photo was taken the day in 1992, when Barbara was evicted from the theatre building complex.
