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

hearing the testimony of those who have been there.

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!!!

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

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

I am aware of this non-profit via my church. The work Sherri, her husband and others do is beyond amazing. She is saving women, one at a time, from the depths of addiction. If I had a magic wand, and became queen of the world, I would insist that every community have what Sherri has created available, to those in need.
