UNCG Photo by Chris English - 2/15/2010 -  U.S. Senator Kay Hagan and more than 100 other supporters attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony for My Sister Susan's House.   A group of interior architecture students, led by assistant professor Robert Michel Charest, undertook their second ambitious Urban Studio design-build project, a 4,500-square-foot home for five teenage mothers and their children in the Eastside Park neighborhood of Greensboro.  A cutting edge program to support young moms and their children was developed by Susan Cupito of YWCA Greensboro and UNCG's departments of Social Work; Human Development & Family Studies; Nutrition; and Communication Sciences & Disorders, as well as the university's Child & Family Research Network.
