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

Albert Sampson

Albert Samspson

We first met Albert in the county jail.  He has a wonderful, praying mother who encourages him to do right.  When he got out he moved into Grace House and began volunteering around the SafeHouse.  He asked if he could join t Tomorrow’s Hope (our outpatient substance abuse program).  He not only attended group, but he applied and we hired him to work in the kitchen at the SafeHouse.  Today, we presented him his graduation certificate.  We are SO PROUD of Albert.  He is a good worker, a kind and loving soul and a successful graduate from our substance abuse program.

Terry Hawthorne

We first met Terry when the temperature was dangerously cold several years ago.  Her house didn’t have heat and she came to the SafeHouse.  She has been helping out ever since.  She comes to church on Sunday mornings, she helps in the clothing closet and encourages people that come through the SafeHouse.  During the freeze nights this year she has been the “House Mom” for the women’s room.  She moved out of her own home in order to make sure the women that stayed with us were safe and warm.  She’s a loving and wonderful friend of the ministry and servant of God.  Thanks Terry!

Charles Jeffries

Charles has led his SafeHouse team through the rough winter we’ve experienced so far.  We have been open 11 nights in January due to extreme cold weather.  Charles organized his team to make sure we fed three meals each day, slept an average of 62 people each night, served over 120 people each day, gave out jackets and warm clothing and kept folks comfortable enough to avoid “cabin fever’.  Thanks to Charles and his awesome TEAM for making sure anyone in need was safe and warm.

Safehouse Ministries Mission Statement

We exist to love and serve homeless, addicted and/or incarcerated men and women as they transition back into our community.

 

Home Away From Homelessness

Safe and clean housing

Our clients get jobs, save money and eventually move 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

In November 2010, We 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 abandoned apartment complex in need of repair. Much like the people we serve, the Grace House is now a beautiful and fully functioning 48 bed facility serving homeless men.
