REVERE, Mass. - July 12, 2014 - PRLog -- Sylvia Anthony, founder of Sylvia’s Haven believes “the golden years” are a time to gear up and get busy, not relax and take it easy. She has faced many hardships in her 84 years, but they have made her stronger and more determined. As founder and president of Sylvia’s Haven, a shelter for women and children near Boston, she has helped transform over 1086 lives in the past 27 years! This organization is everything to Sylvia Anthony even calling it her “magnificent obsession!”

Sylvia has also authored a book about her life called “Till the End of Time” (Xulon Press) and is also being considered for a television series. Sylvia’s story begins with her life as an unwanted child, beaten by her father and ignored by her mother, saved only by the love of God and her grandparents. Next comes her teenage years and first marriage which ended in divorce because of cruelty, but produced three amazing children that she had to raise alone. Later in her second marriage she grew closer to God and was blessed to be able to open up the organization which she leads today.

Life hasn’t been easy throughout the years, but Sylvia firmly believes that God not only gives her courage during times of hardship, but also keeps her healthy so that she may realize a dream of hers which is to open up a shelter, Sylvia’s Haven, in all 50 states!
