The Pearce House, a new Graduate House for the Oaks of Righteousness ministry
After graduating successfully in 1 year from the Oaks of Righteousness recovery program, the women struggle to find an affordable place to live in the area. All too often they have to start over in a new location with minimum support; or worse, go back to the people and places that contributed to their incarceration. Their incomes limit the options for housing and many landlords will not rent to ex-offenders. At Pearce House, they will continue their journey to live productive God-honoring lives with employment and transportation. The Pearce House will be self-supporting and self-governed. Residents will sign a contract/commitment and guidelines for residency. The residents will pay a monthly house fee manageable at their income levels. We are thankful and give God all the glory for acquiring this graduate house for the Oaks of Righteousness ministry in 2020.
Thank you Jeanne & Garland Slaughter Foundation for the Pearce House grant!
