Rebuilding Broken Lives… On the wall in the dinning room it reads, “Your brokenness is welcome here.” This is a phrase which points to our heart; restoration is the focus and Jesus is the foundation!
Here at the Women and Children’s Center (WCC) we offer a long-term, free recovery program for women dealing with overwhelming personal issues such as addiction, domestic violence, or a criminal history.
Recognizing that permanent change starts at the heart level, these programs address the underlying thoughts, feelings and beliefs that drive destructive behavior. At the center, women and their children find healing for their brokenness as well as the tools and direction they need to live in the freedom Jesus offers.
Our hope is to show our guests the love of God through His Son —
“Darkness cannot drive darkness out; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” ~ Martin Luther King Jr.
I had a call from a man named Brian who was trying to get a friend into Grace House. He told me about his friends’ troubles and her desire to be free of her addictions. He had been keeping her in his home to keep her safe. She happened to be there when I called and I was able to talk to her. She told me a little about herself and was very interested in coming to Grace House when we had an opening. I told her we would be having an opening soon. After talking she turned the phone back over to him. At that time he expressed to me how much he wanted her to do the program at Grace House. He said his Mom had done the program at Grace House and it completely changed her life. He knew that she also worked a year at Grace House after she graduated to help other women. She has stayed sober and is moving forward with her life and reconciliation. He said there was a lot of healing that needed to be done with family members, but they are working on healing. His mom’s constant prayer in the time she was with us was to have reconciliation with her kids. What a blessing it is to beat Grace House and see women transformed into the Godly women God intended them to be.
Sober living with healthy programs keeps the end goal in mind: Living as a God-dependent, contributing member of society. Chores, work therapy, vocational education and practicum prepare women to provide for themselves and their children.
WCC aftercare offers weekly support, mentoring and other resources to help people maintain a healthy, balanced and successful life after moving out.
