Heal One Woman,
Heal a Community
Together, we can break the cycle of poverty, addiction, and incarceration.
We help rebuild the lives of women who have experienced trauma, sexual exploitation, addiction, and incarceration through safe housing, long-term support, and community partnerships.
We provide a comprehensive, collaborative and structured residential program that can comfortably house up to 8 women for two years, at no cost to them.

A New Path for Magdalene Serenity House
Last December 2020, we took a leap of faith and purchased the adjacent property to MSH. This new home will allow up to four of our former residents to have safe, affordable housing as they build income and savings. The proximity of this home to our current property ensures additional support if our graduates need it.
We have raised the full cost of the purchase, but we must replace the electrical system, add smoke detectors, an oven & vent, replace a shower, and fully furnish the 1,360 square foot house. (A bonus — we have a full basement with bathroom and washer dryer and lots of potential program space, and a double garage.) Estimated costs to fully repair, finish the basement, and furnish — $230,000. To date, we have raised a little over $100,000 for renovations.
Our graduates are demonstrating that the healing sanctuary of Magdalene Serenity House works just as we envisioned. Women who have survived childhood trauma, sexual abuse, incarceration and addiction are finding freedom and agency in a safe, supportive environment — and they need local, safe, and affordable housing to continue on their journey. Help us open the road to recovery and health through this new aftercare home
