Welcome Home Ministries offers loving support and encouragement to incarcerated women that society would like to ignore. We come along side a woman in jail or prison and offer her our experience, strength and hope with resources to assist her in her new journey of new life in recovery and re-birth. I have been blessed with seven years of serving lovely and courageous women.

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

many lives, both joyful and heartbreaking. The seriousness of this ministry is that women die from drug and alcohol addiction.

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

find someone to donate a large apartment complex with endless funding could scratch the surface.

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

the relationships are truly real and lasting!!!

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

very loving and dedicated...

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

purchase an apartment complex and hire more loving people to meet the great needs!!!

Ways to make it better...

the organization had endless funds!!!

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

not enough funding and they need more volunteers

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

I look forward to serving with Welcome Home Ministries as long as possible!!!

Welcome Home Ministries (WHM)is a wonderful organization where you can witness beautiful transformations in the lives of women who have previously been incarcerated. WHM works with women who are willing to and want to change their life for the better. I have witnessed the mentors and staff of Welcome Home walk alongside these women providing nationally recognized excellence in mentorship. WHM is a dynamic and loving organization that is dedicated to rebuilding the lives of women and guiding them into a fully restored and successful life.

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

In a very short time this year they have accomplished so much. They have expanded their mentorship program, they continue to reach out to women who are asking for help, and I have witnessed community support and involvement increase exponentially.
