Empowering women from a life of dependency to one of sustainability through employment opportunities, resulting in a hope filled future.
Our founders know that once a woman knows she is truly loved, there is hope. We know that hope comes through the love and power found in Jesus Christ. Janna and Susie found lives worth living and pay it forward to those in need. Christ-centered philosophies guide our counseling, but we never require religion, faith, or certain doctrines on our clients.
We accept women of all religions, backgrounds, races, and ethnicities. Whether or not you are a Christian is not a factor in our selection process. However, if you are interested in learning more about how the unconditional love of Jesus Christ can help guide your journey, we are more than happy to offer counseling from this perspective.
