The French cathedral has dozens of columns inside with intricate detail work inside and out, including rows of pews and a simulated stained glass window. Another church has a wooden pipe organ in one corner while a wedding is occurring nearby. Neither the village nor the church are real, though the French cathedral is Laon Cathedral in northern France - a replica of it, that is. Hagerstown-area resident Jorge Portalea carved details such as the columns out of wood and assembled them with glue to create the approximately 18-inch-high cathedral.

Here, victims hope to escape a life of uncertainty and beatings and break the cycle of domestic violence. They expect to be welcomed by a group of women who will offer support and counseling through a traumatic experience.
