Help me offer women in crisis a new beginning!

I have a dream to have a space that is safe for women to get help, healing and hope when they are in crisis.  I also want to have a place for women who need to escape a dangerous situation.

I already own a property with the potential to house women.  I will use the funds I raise to remodel and build a clean, comfortable, safe space for women to land, get their bearings and decide what to do next. 

I know what it is like to feel lost, afraid and alone.  I have overcome very difficult circumstances in my life and I want to share the hope that I have found with others.

I don't live in a large city where there are lots of resources available, but I know there are many tender hearted, generous people who are willing to help.  Are you one of them?

There could be no greater accomplishment for me than to give women the chance for a new beginning.  I would be so grateful if you would partner with me to offer women help, healing and hope.

Progress update! We have now completed the framing for the housing for our ladies! The need is great! Please help us to provide safe housing for women in crisis. Next steps, plumbing, electrical and heat/ac. Bids are in at $40,000. I believe it can be done for less but we still need your help. Take action today!

It has been a long road to get to here but we have finally started construction. This is just the beginning of framing but I believe it is going to gain downhill speed from here. Don't give up on us yet! We are so excited about this big leap forward in progress but we still need your help. The next big need is the HVAC for the upstairs. I just heard from a woman who needed housing on Monday. She was so blessed that her call was answered on a holiday weekend. It is still true that women in crisis need temporary, transitional housing in Southern Minnesota. Please keep this project in your prayers. Blessings!

"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Maybe you have not thought about us lately. There was a lot going on in the country and the news and so I've let you rest. But there are ladies who need to find rest too. You might be looking at this page and think, you've only raised $825.00 of the $100,000. Nothing is going to get done here so I'm not going to invest in it. Trust in the Lord with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. There is more going on than you are seeing on the Go Fund Me page. God is faithful, of that I am sure. Just this morning $1,000 showed up in my mailbox. And we just got a $1,000 grant from the city for the recent renovation we had to do to save on the heating bill. Last night, we got 10 $250.00 promises of seed money to do fundraisers and outreach. God is on the move. And every time I speak, someone has a story. Not just one someone. Several. Of being in this place and not knowing what to do. Of wishing this had been around when they were going through it. It is the Father's heart to love on His children. As you tuck yourselves in warm and cozy with your family for the holidays, won't you consider a gift to help give help, healing and hope to women in crisis. You are loved, either way. God bless you.

Knowing that God is faithful and trusting Him to fulfill His promises and seeing them actually happen are two completely different and wonderful experiences. Facing the reality of lost money from heat loss, we needed to replace windows and insulate the front of the building. We have stepped out in faith to begin this project and He is already bringing funds, separate and above those we are raising for the Safe House portion of our project. Isn't He so very good?!!! So how about it? Would you like to sow into this amazing work that the Lord is doing right here before our eyes? You don't want to be the one left out, do you?
