“King’s Home for me and others is a place of healing for the broken, a place of new beginnings, and a second chance for some of us. I am a miracle in the making. I have hope and I have a future. The love is real. The caring hearts, the gentle words, also the words of encouragement, the “I understand, Angela,” is the real thing”. — Angela

What makes Hannah Homes different?

The Hannah Homes are residential homes for women and women with children seeking refuge from abuse and domestic violence.

Hannah Homes are not short-term shelters; they are long-term solutions.

Women who enter Hannah Homes may stay for up to two years and take the necessary time to truly heal themselves and their families. During this time, the women can undergo counseling, receive job training, earn their GEDs, and focus on their educations—all while receiving the unconditional love and support each one needs to truly break the cycle of abuse.

We provide food, housing, medical expenses, transportation, and childcare so that these women may focus on getting their lives together while becoming sound — emotionally and financially — so that they will never re-enter an abusive situation.

All services are provided with loving support and in a home-like, non-institutional setting, empowering these women to eventually live on their own in a stable and dignified manner Services are available without regard to race, creed, age, national origin, marital status, sexual orientation, handicap, or religion.

According to the American Psychological Association, each year an estimated 3.3 million children are exposed to violence by family members against their mothers or female caretakers. Witnessing this abuse is detrimental to a child’s emotional and sociological well-being and perpetuates further abuse. The consensus among authorities is that 90 percent of domestic-abuse victims who don’t receive help will repeat the cycle, entering abusive relationships or becoming an abuser.

The King’s Home program seeks to break this cycle by providing refuge and support for children and women fleeing abuse, domestic violence and homelessness. The majority of these women and children have been victims or witnesses of domestic violence. This abuse will continue to plague them and future generations if the appropriate actions aren’t taken to see to a proper recovery.

These women and children suffer from a variety of psychological and emotional problems related to their histories of abuse. The women striving to make a better life for themselves and their children may stay in the program for up to two years, and they must commit themselves to change, setting goals, and taking responsibility for their lives and their children’s lives. Our mission is to help these women and their children move beyond the cycle of abuse to become stable and independent, with the competency and confidence to face their future.
