Mary was the youngest of four girls raised in a Christian home, but home was lacking in many areas.
The women therapy and training program at A Friend's House (AFH) takes 12 months to complete. Women receive therapy and training to help them address the underlying issues that led to their destructive life choices.
Our goal is for each young woman to graduate from AFH with the skills to live healthy, independent lives. Successfully completing the program requires daily hard work in group sessions, one-on-one meetings with advocates and life skills training.
A Friend's House works to encourage personal responsibility for attitudes and behaviors. Progress through the program depends on the individual and the initiative she takes in her success. Our main goal is to provide help for women and give them a safe place for a fresh start.
