Authorized biography of the Minneapolis woman who is often called America's Mother Teresa. Since opening her first storefront shelter for the disadvantaged in 1985, she has raised $50 million to help others--and not one dime has come from government or United Way assistance.
Her love for others less fortunate is borne of her own experience of abandonment, abuse, and addiction. Today a complex of four facilities stands at the heart of Minneapolis, a testimony to what the St Paul (MN) Pioneer Press calls "Her incredible ability to evolve and push her agenda."
Mary Jo Copeland's efforts in Minneapolis can be an inspiration to towns and cities throughout the nation.
Congressman Jim Ramstad (D-MN) in his foreword to the book says,"Mary Jo follows the example of Christ closer than any other human being I've known...This story needs to be read by everyone."
