NEW HOPE REFUGE
We have this hope an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.
– Hebrews 6:19
A Christ-centered ministry where women with addictions can find a NEW HOPE for a new life through complete surrender & gaining a personal relationship with Jesus Christ . We want to offer a refuge that provides ways to learn and apply God’s Word to the broken and the lost . Our residential program will also provide life skills and help teach women essential ways to enter back int o society. We will also provide ways to promote healing within the families and children involved by encouraging weekly family involvement within the time these women are in our program.
New Hope Refuge is minimum 7-month faith based and Christ centered program for women 19 years of age and older who are struggling with substance abuse issues. Although the exact duration for each woman is based on her personal spiritual growth. Residents will go through two phases during the program including Phase 1 and Transition Phase. During this time, residents will be given the opportunity to develop a personal love relationship with Jesus Christ. Through this relationship, they will find freedom from the chains of addiction, forgiveness from their past, and HOPE for their future.
New Hope Refuge is a faith based 501(c)3 organization. Our ministry provides a beacon of HOPE for adult females and their families who are suffering from addiction by restoring broken lives through Christ and discipleship training from the Word of God. Our program is a minimum seven month stay, residents can expect to spend approximately five months in Phase 1, and two months in the Transition Phase. We offer Hope for court remanded or self-admit residents that are voluntarily seeking help for addiction. We encourage as much family involvement as possible.
We provide a safe, secluded, and intimate home where women can feel free to speak, listen, and heal from their shared pain and struggles. Our residents will experience a program, that in a unique way inspires confidence in themselves, their connection with God, and effective faith-based healing. “God’s love has the power to reach and transform the willing “broken” woman, offering them a life of truth, peace, and purpose.” Our goal is to provide a place where residents can renew their minds, and to provide the right motivations, environment, training, and mentorship to support this transformation.
Residents are required to live on campus the full seven months. They are housed, fed, and discipled at no cost. The women will receive extensive Bible Study and Life skill classes each week led by local volunteers and staff members. Attendance at Sunday services and Church Involvement are required. Our ministry is service centered, and residents are taught to serve others and the community. Weekly “service projects” are an important part of the program.
New Hope Refuge is a Christ-centered ministry where women with addictions can find a new life through Jesus Christ.
