This community of women experiences life together in a safe environment where they are guided through the process of overcoming traumas and related harmful behaviors, such as addiction.
The Women & Children’s Center can house up to 9 individuals and is tucked away into a quiet neighborhood offering a haven for women to slow down and take a deep breath. Once the basic needs of food and shelter are met, these women can finally step out of “survival mode” and begin the journey to healing and growth.
Whether grabbing coffee, cooking a meal together, or having a game night, these relationships are an integral part of building an authentic connection in the local community. This ultimately creates a sense of belonging and worth as a member of society.
Within the walls of the Women & Children’s Center, we find a connection that is hard to understand without experiencing it for yourself. As they walk alongside each other, residents, staff, and volunteers challenge each other to dig deeper and to be vulnerable. In this setting, women who have never experienced true acceptance and unconditional love find themselves slowly letting others in and being transformed by genuine support.
It is a truly inspiring atmosphere, where women reestablish their sense of self and are built up by each other. With grace and connection at the center, the Women & Children’s Center is far more than a long-term life recovery program – it is a family.
