Bieber's Mom Fights to Keep Shelter Open
Justin Bieber's mum is fighting to keep the shelter she called home while waiting to give birth to the future pop superstar open.
The Salvation Army's Bethesda Center in London, Ontario became a sanctuary for frightened teenager Patti Mallette, and now she has joined a campaign to prevent its closure.
Charity bosses have announced plans to shut the shelter, which supports pregnant teens and young mums, as a cost-cutting measure.
Malette and other supporters have launched a Facebook.com to urge Salvation Army officials to rethink their plans.
Ironically, the save-the-centre saga hits the headlines just two days before Bieber's 18th birthday on Thursday.
