We want our residents to feel loved and part of our family. Our strongest desire is that each woman comes to understand the love of God through a relationship with Jesus.

We provide food, clothing, hygiene, counseling, medical advocacy and employment assistance. As each woman grows in confidence and independence, we help her transition to her own apartment while continuing a relationship through Bible studies, Life Skill Classes and worship time.

Our Story

Every now and then God places a vision in our hearts and minds so strong it can’t be ignored. Six years ago, God gave this vision to Robyn as she worked with finding housing for women being released from jail and prison. Caring for newborn grandchildren and recovering from the news of cancer took the focus away for a season. After she received an “all-clear” from her doctor, God began the wheels in motion again. Several people approached Robyn with offers of help as God guided the process of becoming a non-profit corporation, obtaining a tax ID, procuring a name and a house. In January, 2020, the house opened to begin restoring lives. To God be the Glory!
