We all make mistakes. Life is about accepting those mistakes, learning from them, overcoming them and not making the same mistake again. Kindness, love, acceptance, understading and respect....for yourself, for others. Shari and the Rebekahs House are changing lives and there is no greater gift you can give someone.....kindness, love, acceptance, understanding and respect. Thank you for all you do!

Rebekah’s House is about changing lives. I believe key ingredients in the “recipe” for a changed life are an honest desire to change, asking for help and support during the process of change. Rebekah’s House offers the support on a very loving and personnel level that is crucial to that process of change. Rebekah’s House is proof that God is working miracles today and I will continue to support its efforts.

I have a daughter that lives in Rebekah's House for the last 16 months. I can't even begin to explain all the wonderful things that the House has done for my daughter. I truly believe that Rebekah's House has saved my daughter's life. It has given her a faith in God and the courage to go on. The women who run the house truly love all the girls, and want only the best for them. They are completely unselfish of their time and love. I thank God every day for the wonderful work that they do.

I remember when Rebekah's House was merely a dream brought to St Paul Lutheran Church in Villa Park with request to provide initial support. Shari Shaver's enthusiasm was contagious, and despite the fact that her project would be several counties away from our church, we believed in Shari and knew she would accomplish her vision. I am very proud of what Shari has accomplished. She is an amazing woman. God has blessed all of us by sending us Shari!!!

In hearing the inspiring stories of many served by Rebekah's House.

Rebekah's House came along and took my daughter and welcomed her with open arms...when no one else would. She has tried to get sober for many years and was finally able to do it with the help of this place. They showed her that God does love her, he has a plan for her life, and that she is worthy of all his blessings. she has turned her life over to him and has celebrated 4 yrs of sobriety! praise god for rebekahs house and the kindness and dedication of the staff he has put there. lm

Our ministry, Called On Purpose, had the privilege and honor of doing their pilot program at Rebekah's House. This organization is a blessing and a powerful resource for women who are sincere and have a strong desire for recovery. The doors of this house are open to all women who come with gratitude, acceptance and surrender. During our workshop sessions we were able to see women grow in grace and strengthen their soberiety through surremding their will and life to God. As a non-profit, private organization, that depend on the generosity of others and the willingness to serve; Rebekah's House reaches out not only to the community, but throughout the United States. Spending time to learn about the house and the director's passion to help her fellow sisters will be well worth the effort of anyone who has a desire to pour positively into the lives of women who are in need.

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

Seeing the growth and stability of women that have been throught the program and have been able to maintain ongoing soberiety.

REBEKAHS HOUSE is a valuable resource for the McHenry County Helping Hands orginization. When people are released from the Jail/Prison and need help transitioning into independent living, REBEKAHS HOUSE is an alternative that is offered to them. In most cases the crime committed is related to substance abuse, and to release the person with no support system in place assures a repeat of the same behaviour.

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

the placing of individuals that were in need of support.
