SafeHouse Ministries “Then the righteous will answer him,
‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and
feed you, or thirsty and give you
something to drink? When did we see
you a stranger and invite you in, or
needing clothes and clothe you? When did
we see you sick, or in prison and go to
visit you?" The King will reply,"I tell you
the truth, whatever you did for one of the
least of these brothers of mine,
you did for me."
- Matthew 25:37-40

Meet the three men from Grace House that have led the effort to install and maintain our new garden.  Because of them, we will be serving fresh vegetables at all three ministry locations and begin “putting up” vegetables for the winter.  These men treat the garden as if it was their own.  They don’t just work it, they nurture the garden.  As God blesses people through this ministry it’s a joy to watch these men “pay-it-forward”.

Lisa and Brad Armstrong
and Rachel Martz

Lisa and Brad from Little Bit Farms approached us and asked how they could help.  We told them about our dream for a garden.  They helped design the layout of the garden, shared their wisdom with us and encouraged us to think big.  Rachel Martz started our seeds in the greenhouse at Little Bit Farms in February and grew almost 200 wonderful vegetable plants.  After the dirt installed Lisa and Brad brought all Rachel’s plants down to the Grace House and led the effort to get it all in the ground.  What an honor to work with such loving and encouraging people.  Thanks, Lisa, Brad and Rachel.

Jeff Mackey

What an exciting couple of months at Grace House.  The Lord provided 10 raised beds, the 9 truckloads of free dirt to fill the beds, we planted almost 200 vegetable plants and then we installed a drip irrigation system.  Throughout the process, Jeff was on top of things.  He assembled and motivated the men to move dirt, plant plants and tend the garden.  Very proud of Jeff’s leadership on this project.

out on their own, becomming
productive members of
society. Over half of those
who stay with us leave to a
place of their own.

Trinity House

partnered with Trinity
Episcopal Church of
Columbus to open
a 24 bed facility for
disadvantaged women
and children.

Grace House

In August of 2013 we were
deeded a 3 building, 12 unit

serving homeless men.
