Magdalene House is a shelter for homeless women who do not meet the criteria for admission into other area shelters. It provides housing and supportive services for up to 16 women.
But Magdalene House provides more than food and shelter; each resident works through an individualized stability plan. Programming includes: educational opportunities, specific job readiness skills, health & wellness education, transportation resources, mental health services, addiction recovery programming, spiritual guidance and other support services – all designed to assure that each woman has stability first.

COMING SOON! – Foundations
Faith, Discipline, Responsibility, Selflessness, Right Choices, Respect for Authority, Readiness for Life
Foundations will provide transitional housing for men in Morgan County. The men entering Foundations will be those who have achieved sobriety at some other area facility, like a homeless shelter, emergency detox clinic, jail, etc. Foundations’ services and programming are designed to facilitate permanent God-caused change in residents’ patterns of thinking and behavior, empowering them to become stable productive members of the community.
Foundations aims to produce 5 outcomes in the lives of its residents:
- Spiritual Maturity
- Financial Freedom
- Sustained Sobriety
- Life & Social Skills
- Healthy Relationships
We have acquired a propertery on Morgan St. and a $600k grant, but the need is bigger…
The Foundations property currently under renovation at 459 W Morgan.

Join us in praying for victims of addiction:
“O blessed Lord, you ministered to all who came to you: Look with compassion upon all who through addiction have lost their health and freedom. Restore to them the assurance of your unfailing mercy; remove from them the fears that beset them; strengthen them in the work of their recovery; and to those who care for them, give patient understanding and persevering love. Amen.” – Book of Common Prayer, 1979
And for the poor and neglected:
“Almighty and most merciful God, we remember before you all poor and neglected persons whom it would be easy for us to forget: the homeless and the destitute, the old and the sick, and all who have none to care for them. Help us to heal those who are broken in body or spirit, and to turn their sorrow into joy. Grant this, Father, for the love of your Son, who for our sake became poor, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.” – Book of Common Prayer, 1979
