Grace House is a faith-based ministry focused on women who are at risk. Grace House was established to train, support and give hope to women following incarceration, or those in the midst of perilous lifestyles. The Grace House setting and training affords an opportunity for women to overcome the addictive and destructive lifestyles that have kept them from becoming productive citizens.
Applicants must submit an application, and be interviewed and evaluated to determine their desire and potential for participating in Grace House. The ministry?s objective is to educate, encourage and care for selected women until they are prepared to re-enter everyday life in a productive and confident manner.
Grace House is a six month program that provides 24/7 supervised living, which includes room, board and clothing.
