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

Trinity House

A Home Away From Homelessness

As we work with men and women transitioning back into the community, we are able to find almost everything they could need to make their re-entry smooth. We have food, clothing, transportation, and support groups in place. We know where to find identification, job counseling and training, physical and mental health assistance and temporary housing. We can help a person find just about anything they need…….except temporary housing for women and children.

We prayed about this and joined with Trinity Episcopal Church of Columbus to open a 24 bed facility for disadvantaged women and children. The City of Columbus leased us a six unit apartment building for $1 a year. They gave us a 5 year lease with an additional 5 year option.

God provided all the furniture we would need in advance and McCarley Moving and Storage boxed it all up and stored it until we were ready to open. God gave us beds, sheets, pillows, blankets, dressers, night stands, love seats, end tables, entertainment centers, student desks with chairs, washers and dryers, refrigerators, microwaves, stoves/ovens……..all BRAND NEW. What a mighty God we serve!

Finally there's a bed for a woman in the Columbus area and she won't be turned down if she has children.
