Thanks to our maintenance team and several volunteers for their work on this remodel!
Upon her departure, Sharon says, “I’ve been thankful for the Ranch community through the different seasons. I’m thankful to still be in the area and that that community isn’t ending.”
The Girls’ House first started back in 1999, but due to ministry-wide financial challenges, the house was closed in 2014.
In late 2021, a former intern offered to sell his house far below the listing price to meet this need. Thanks to his generosity, we were able to make a long-term housing investment.
As the ministry moved toward reopening the house, intern Grace Bunn was recognizing the need for a safe place for our students upon finishing at the Ranch.
The transition house is a blend of fellowship, fun, hard work, and discipleship. House residents, which can include former interns, can continue to grow in health, strength, and maturity in a known, safe community while maintaining continuity in counseling and discipleship.
Upon completion of her internship, Grace (pictured far right) joined our staff as the Girls’ House Leader. Grace is from Greensboro, AL and studied Criminal Justice at Mississippi College.
