We have had several graduations since February. Our graduates have become a solid support system for each other, and are active in the community. One graduate in particular enjoys calling the residents at the house and reading Bible verses to them, and encouraging them to continue to work through the program.  

One of our residents will soon testify against her rapist in court. She is nervous, but also excited to read her survivor impact statement. We ask for prayers and justice, as our young lady confronts a very intense milestone in her recovery. "I don't know what I would do without the love of Jesus, and the support of Gracehaven staff" she says. 

Our residents have loved their art class over the past five weeks, and are now enrolling in a dance class this week. "It has allowed me to express myself," one resident says.

We had one young lady who only stayed with us for six weeks, until she turned 18. But she completed 3.5 high school credits during her time with us.
