Volunteers are here to help.

Above all, they are committed to helping the girls receive restoration and hope and a future through Jesus Christ.
Our Rose of Sharon home provides a daily structured schedule that blends fun, teaching, and accomplishments. Biblical counseling and spiritual help is given to each girl. It is our purpose to love and nurture them and surround them in a family atmosphere. The girls will also be participating in "doing" God s work through our food ministry. Packing food boxes and sharing God s love with the needy is a privilege we share.
Our purpose is for the Rose of Sharon to help each girl come to know the truth. As the Bible says, "You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free." (John 8:32) We encourage each girl to become strong Christians, full of the love and joy of the Lord through their applying God s Word in their lives.
Crisis pregnancy is received with gentle and loving guidance to help meet the needs of each woman. We help to educate the girls about the options available to them in order to help them make the best decision, whether to parent or place their baby for adoption. Each girl will be supported as she decides which option is best for her life. Those who choose adoption will be provided with adoption services and will receive adoption counseling. Those who choose to parent their baby will receive classes on parenting and child care skills and receive counseling. We provide programs to help those facing the problems of drugs, alcohol or sexual abuse. These programs are individually designed to meet each girl s needs.
FREE OF CHARGE: All girls come free of charge. The only qualification is that the girls have a desire to change their life through Christian ministry. The Rose of Sharon will provide encouragement, love and forgiveness through Jesus Christ. The average stay usually lasts about six months, depending on each girl s situation.
To come to Rose of Sharon you will be required to fill out our application and return it to us. When the application is received, a telephone interview will follow.
The home does not accept women with mental problems who are on medications, because we are not equipped to meet these needs.

He says: "Come to me, all you that are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28).
