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

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

my daughter and her sucess....

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

tell every women if she surrenders as my daughter did, life will be great!

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

the love and caring the staff offers the women

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

kind, caring, passionate and dedicated

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

get financially stable with the house and open up more houses

Ways to make it better...

I found it sooner

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

financial support

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

god reigns

Rebekah's House is a miracle from God. He gave Shari the idea and she ran with it. She gives 110% all of the time. I have never seen a more dedicated person in my life. She has helped so many women to be productive citizens again. She has helped them find jobs, and teaches them life skills that they have never known. She works many many hours and gives so much of herself. Her Husband Paul and Daughter Christina also work very hard so the program can continue to be one of the best. I wish I could win the lotto so I could help them and they wouldn't have to worry about the mortgage or any material things.Thank you Shari & Staff!

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

Seeing the many women that Shari has helped and what a wonderful job she does.

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

Make funding more available so they could focus on the program instead of worrying about the bills.

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

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Very hard working and really involved in the program.

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

Purchase more property so they could help many more women.

Ways to make it better...

The funding was available.

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

Money for operational costs and salary for employees.

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

I hope God has it in His plans for good things to happen for Rebekah's House.

I know this, that Shari and her husband Paul are very hard workers for these ladies who have no where else to go to get sober and be set on the right path to freedom from their addiction. They have strived to make a safe home for them and have many successes. They both put in a lot of hours in trying to maintain Rebekahs House and raise the funds necessary to keep it going, especially since the State has cut off a lot of resources. God bless you both for the wonderful work that you do.

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

at their fund raisers at the Villa Desiderata that they hold once a year.
