I have been involved with mentoring the ladies at APH (A Peaceful Habitation) for over two years. I have gotten to know many of the X-prisoners quite well, and I am impressed with how well they have done as a result of living at this facility. Weekly Bible studies, Daily Devotions, and Life Skills are just a few of the things they learn there. Each lady must live at APH for a minimum of six months. Many ladies who have completed their time at APH are finding ways to legally make it on their own, without drugs!! Most have been able to reestablish relationships with their families, and many of them are going to school so that they can get better paying jobs. For every lady who doesn't end up going back to prison, APH saves the state and federal government a lot of money, and the success rate at APH is quite impressive. APH works very hard at being a "hand-up" and not a "hand-out" organization. It is a joy to be a volunteer at such a well-run nonprofit organization.

I have personally experienced the results of this organization because I have established lasting friendships with other mentors as well as with X-prisoners. Mentors meet at least once a week with each lady and monthly with other mentors.

My experience with A Peaceful Habitation (APH) has been a blessing from God. I am currently a mentor for APH and have found more joy and have learned more from these women then I ever thought I would. It's an amazing gift to give a woman recently released from prison/jail, a home to go to, a roof over their head, a meal in their stomach, electricity, hot water and not even need to worry how they will get it. These women have a stepping stone back into society and will be empowered and more likely to succeed with the help from APH! I Thank God everyday for finding APH!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my every day walk with the Lord.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make it bigger and broader through the state of New Mexico and nationally one day. I believe The founders are working on opening another location.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the experience strength and hope it has given these women.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help more women that have made a bad choice turn their lives around. These women are not bad people, but ones that have had struggles in their lives and have felt there wasn't any other way to live or achieve what they were seeking.

Ways to make it better...

I found this organization earlier in life! I feel I could have made a difference in more woman's lives.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

financial, this organization runs on donations alone and could do so much more if there were a couple more helping hands out there.

One thing I'd also say is that...

hopefully God will provide the funds and the volunteers needed to keep this place running. It truly is gift from above.
