The JoyHouse is busting at the seams! We have outgrown the house!The JoyHouse is a home set up to provide shelter and support during crisis pregnancies. By providing a safe place to live, mentoring, and education, the JoyHouse will empower women and their children to escape lives of cyclical poverty and live successful, healthy lives.
In 2009, a young woman found herself pregnant unexpectedly. The father was not in the picture. She was told by her family that, in order to stay, she would need to have an abortion. She had no hope. She felt like she had no choice. In January of 2010, Jeremiah David was born, because this young woman discovered the JoyHouse. At the JoyHouse, she was given hope, and given a choice. She chose life.
Since then, several women have come to the JoyHouse to find a safe place for anyone needing guidance or direction in a crisis pregnancy. While there, they received the love, discipleship, and encouragement they needed to experience success in life and become good mothers to their babies.
On November 12th, the JoyHouse will relaunch in our new, 4700 sq. ft., 5 bedroom house. This new facility will have the capacity for up to 16 resident. Also, we will be able to house women who already have children. We are extremely excited about that as this is a tremendous need in our county.
The JoyHouse is not just a safe place to live. Members of the JoyHouse family will also take a host of classes that include life skills, job skills, and spiritual growth. Additionally, each resident will be paired up with a mentor who will coach them throughout the process. Upon graduation from the JoyHouse, these ladies will be able to live independently and create loving, nurturing homes for their babies.
