Women helping women

During the school year, we offer 10 weekly classes on different topics such as boundaries, parenting, addiction and more.
September or October- Peace by Piece Party
Awareness & Outreach
One of the biggest challenges of a new ministry is just letting people know that we are here! The Peace by Piece party is a 1-hour informal get-together! If you gather a small group of friends together, we will share pictures, stories and
facts about LHM in a fun and informative way. There is no pressure and we don't even accept financial contributions at these parties to eleviate any form of peer pressure. We just want people to hear about what we're doing.
You can host this in your own home or you can use LHM transitional home. We provide the invitations if you'll just invite the guests!
September or October- LHM Speaker

September or October- Adopt A Room
decorate one room in the new transitional home
This is a great group project! Pick either a bedroom, family room, bathroom or Kitchen and pick a style, gather the furniture , paint and decorations and have fun putting the room together to make it beautiful for new residents. Many businesses are very genereous and usually donate items for the cause.. Life House can give you a letter with our non-profit number to make this easier.
