People will come and go in life, but the person in the mirror will be there forever. So be good to yourself.

OUR PURPOSE

Our house is a safe haven for abused women and their children in time of need. While our purpose is to give hope, we offer guidance and stability. Our home is where women and their children can be inspired, get the help and support they need to learn and feel understood. Hoping that this will enable them to build courage, in a safe, caring and loving environment to get back into society.
