We supply women with a home to live in free of charge, where we help them get on their feet to live independently as productive members of society. We help them obtain jobs, childcare and education if needed, while teaching them basic life skills. The goal is to empower women to be able to provide for themselves and their children. We want to help break the cycle of welfare and poverty.
Most young women today have so much shame. Shame from what they’ve done or shame from what’s been done to them. So they think they’re ugly and unworthy of love. So, they cut and they numb themselves with drugs or alcohol and sex. They live recklessly because they’re worthless anyway, right?
But Jesus also experienced horrendous shame. On the cross. He was naked and exposed for all to see. Bruised and beaten. Spit upon. Laughed at and mocked. He did that to take away our shame! He did that because He VALUES YOU. Shame doesn’t have to be the end of your story. Jesus makes all things new.
