She plans to turn the old Greyhound bus station downtown into an outreach center for girls living on the street to teach them valuable life lessons like "How to maintain a livelihood. To reach out to other communities. And we can teach them sewing classes, how to make their bedspreads, curtains and their clothes, designing. Also computer training. And we would like to feed here also like 2 times a day," says Breedlove.
