Director of Hearten House
The DeKalb Community Impact Corporation is launching Hearten House Gospel Rescue Mission, a women’s restorative care facility, slated to open in the fall of 2017. Hearten House will serve up to 10 women at a time, who are experiencing a homeless crisis. The program of care will include counseling and accountability in the following areas: recovery from trauma, spiritual and emotional health, personal finances, life skills, employability, parenting and relationships. While emergency housing will be available, the primary mission of Hearten House will be this long-term program of total-life transformation, which will require women to commit to 6 – 8 months of course work and case management.
