About Us

Heal One Woman, Heal A Community

Magdalene Serenity House is a healing sanctuary serving women who have experienced trauma, sexual exploitation, addiction, and incarceration by providing opportunities for community, and paths to flourish.

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.

Women admitted to Magdalene are committed to achieving and maintaining a sober lifestyle, regaining control of their lives, and attaining financial independence.
