Sarah’s House -
A Caring and Safe Place for Ladies Who Are Ready for Real Change!
Sarah’s House is one of the ways Connect Palmer helps ladies in our community to have a safe place to live while participating in LifeConnect, a life skills program, and God’s Work Design, a work ready program.
The residents go through 4 phases to complete the program and it can take 6 months to 1 year, depending on where they are in their life.
We are a training center with housing available to help women ages 18 and above with moving their lives in a new direction, by providing Christian growth and discipleship for those who qualify.
