Rebuilding Broken Lives

Your brokenness is welcome here

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.

Equipped for Life

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.
