This program has the biggest share of our heart. That’s because our 12-month, comprehensive Women and Children’s Center program helps get families back on their feet, kids back in school, and hope back in their lives.
Through this unique residential program, women are able to find the healing they need while simultaneously continuing to raise their children. The Women and Children’s Center provides long-term treatment to residents while incorporating Biblical principles into their lives, leading to lasting, transformative change.
In addition to meeting basic needs such as food and shelter, the Women and Children’s Center includes specialized classes, parenting and life skills training, therapy, and skills-building geared toward helping residents avoid abusive relationships.
School-aged children receive such services as after-school tutoring, individual on-site counseling, school supplies and a secure playground.
Toddlers find a warm, stimulating environment in the Children’s Center. A licensed preschool, the Children’s Center focuses on developing healthy social and emotional skills.
In the residential transition period here at the Mission after graduation, we remain available to assist our residents in obtaining housing and employment, giving them their greatest chances for success in returning to the outside world as a contributing member of society.
