Results: We started 2014 with 12 girls in our Organization. Through developing honest and open relationships with those girls, we now serve over 70 girls. Out of the girls we have actively involved in our Organization, 8 girls are pregnant, 3 girls are mothers and under the age of 19, 6 girls are without stable, safe, reliable shelter and 3 girls are over the age of 18, without a high school education, and are not currently active in any academic institution. We know that 31 girls drink alcohol and get drunk, under the age of 21, and 14 girls have used drugs on a regular basis, 11 girls been victims of sexual abuse by a person of trust and 5 girls have been pregnant and terminated their pregnancy. Hagar's House is essential because 25 girls come from unstable homes, 12 girls have attempted suicide and 2 girls have committed suicide. There is something wrong with the church as a global whole when 31 girls have answered the question "Has the church community significantly hurt you?" with a YES. While we walk through some challenging struggles with these girls, they succeed on a daily basis. Education is a huge success for our girls, 24 girls have graduated High School with a traditional high school diploma, 16 girls girls are currently enrolled in college, and 15 girls are actively in middle school or high school. Education is a part of their success but the ability to hold a job is huge, and we are proud to say that 18 girls are successfully holding jobs It is exciting to see the girls leave behind their brokenness and function through the healing of Jesus Christ. There will always be more work to do, more girls to show love, grace, forgiveness, and compassion to. And we are committed to doing that through providing shelter, education, a sense of community and love to all broken girls within a safe environment.

Programs: Our Week Night Dinner program provides dinner on a regular basis for the girls within our Organization. Hagar's House will be a short term residential program for the girls within our Organization. One of the biggest needs our girls have is the need for safe shelter. Hagar's House will meet that need. Our Encounter Jesus Conferences are for those girls within the Organization. The girls who participate in our Week Night Dinner Program as well as those who participate in Hagar's House have the opportunity to come together and Encounter Jesus.
