Gifts to Provide Shelter and Transform Lives

This Thanksgiving, we are giving thanks around the new table in the new kitchen in the new wing of our home on Cherry Street -- all built with love. Very soon, renovations to our family wing will be complete. With a total of 17 new and refurbished rooms, we can now shelter approximately 30 women and children. This is double our capacity last year at this time and for this, we are so grateful and blessed.

We are also grateful and blessed to be able to offer some exciting new ways to support our ministry with our 2020 Meaningful Gift Options menu. Entering the world of online shopping is new for us and we want this to be a smooth and enjoyable experience for you. Happy shopping -- and please continue to check back for updates and stories about happenings around our home.

Stories of struggle, perseverance and hope are woven throughout these songs – not unlike the stories of women who find themselves at our home on Cherry Street.
