This is truly a ministry that changes women's lives. I have taken a tour of one of the houses and met with a former resident to hear her story. Through the help of Rachel's House, this woman has completely turned her life around and is making a positive impact in her community. And that is only one person's story! Through mentoring and simple love and care for these women, Rachel's House provides a safe place for them to heal their spiritual and physical body as well as mend broken relationships.
