We promote wholeness to those who are broken from abuse, addiction and trafficking through a Christian program designed to restore, strengthen,confirm and establish individuals through the power of Jesus Christ.
"And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you."
1 Peter 5:10 (ESV)
The Lord has given us a very specific vision on how to minister to those who have been affected by the abuse, addiction and trafficking epidemic.
For the first phase of our vision we are currently seeking property and housing to begin the “Whole-way” housing project. This project consists of a halfway house environment that instills Biblical principles, along with effective case management services to include intensive outpatient, life skills and career counseling.
The second phase of our vision is prayerfully expected to begin in 2020. This clinical residential will be a 12-month program that will instill healing through a Whole-listic approach through a new Wholeness Theory that includes intense therapeutic care and structured programing.

About Our Program
Our program believes in a Whole-listic approach that focuses on the human body as a “whole being”. We believe that we are created as spiritual beings, clothed with a body, mind, emotion and will. We promote wholeness by first addressing the spiritual needs of an individual through Biblical principles by adding prayer, study and application of the Word of God. We address wholeness through the body by exercise, eating healthy and the implementation of scriptural healing. The Word of God says to be transformed by the renewing of your minds. We promote wholeness by renewing the mind through art, music and animal therapies, along with mental health counseling. Wholeness Ministries promotes wholeness to emotions by instinctively changing the way one views their circumstances. We teach individuals to reject, resist and replace negative thoughts, which restores the peace of one’s mind. Our team promotes a healthy will by implementing case management, along with continuing education, career counseling, life skills and re-entry services.
