Women & Children Services

Our goal is to be a place of hope and encouragement for women experiencing life’s struggles. Whether it is to get in from a cold night or a desire to start fresh, our caring staff wishes to meet both the physical and spiritual needs of those longing to break the cycle of homelessness.

We Provide:

  • 30-day stay for unaccompanied women with children under the age of eighteen
  • A clean and sober environment
  • Two hot and hearty meals a day
  • Hot showers and a laundry room
  • A safe place to stay
  • Spiritual encouragement
  • Two recovery programs
  • Life coaching
  • Referrals

Upon arrival, all guests go through an intake interview and create a Life Action Plan with a staff member. Should a guest need to stay more than 30 days, she may choose one of the following two options:

Healing Home: A life-transformation program lasting from 12 – 18 months, for women who desire to step out of the cycle of destructive patterns that are connected to addiction, trauma and broken relationships. The program consists of three primary components—overcoming addiction, life skills development, and spiritual growth and discipleship. 

Connections: An extension program lasting up to four months, for guests working independently to obtain employment or housing.

If you have questions or want to find out more, email us or call 509-525-7153.

Upon arrival, all guests go through an intake interview and create a "growth plan" with a staff member. At the end of the 30-day dorm stay, guests opt for one of the following three options:

  • Rebuilders: A spiritual, life transformation program (12-14 months)
  • Connections: An extended-stay, work program (up to 4 months)
