Today in the United States, women with children comprise the fastest growing homeless population. Through The Genesis Acres Recovery Program, single women and single women with children find a safe place to live and care for their children while recovering from addictions, abuse, divorce or other emotional traumas. Through this transformation program, they find a renewed sense of self-worth and the strength they need to move forward with their lives.

The program schedule includes:

  • Bible study
  • Christian Nurturing Parenting classes
  • Genesis Process Counseling
  • Individual spiritual discipleship
  • Community meeting
  • 12-step recovery meetings

In addition to these on-site meetings at Genesis Acres, each woman must attend a Celebrate Recovery meeting at a local church and attend weekly church services. There is a 9 p.m. curfew, which may be extended with permission. Household chores, meal planning and schedules bedtimes for children are part of the program.

If you are interested in getting help, we are looking for women who want to grow in the Lord, and who have a desire to live life free of addictions and other life controlling issues.

Domestic Violence Information

For women suffering from the affects of domestic violence, the Mission offers Abigails as an online resource. Domestic violence is a pattern of coercive, intimidating, or violent behavior used to gain and maintain power and control over an intimate partner or household member. It happens through a variety of means, such as emotional, sexual, religious, or physical abuse. Specific physical examples include slapping, shoving, hitting, choking, physically restraining, throwing things, and sexual assault. In some cases, no physical assault or battering is involved. Crushing verbal attacks, cruelty, bewildering “mind games” and humiliation are often enough to intimidate and control. Learn more at Abigails.org »
