Residents

Who We Serve

Our residents consist of non-violent women being released from prison. They complete an application which is then followed by an interview. Once accepted, residents will live at Clare House for 12 months as they begin to put the pieces of their life back together. Clare of Assisi House has accommodations for 12 women who participate in a Supportive Housing Resident Agreement, while saving for a security deposit to transition to their own housing.

While at Clare of Assisi House, our mission is to foster restoration of women affected by incarceration to find encouragement, home and the support they need to successfully reenter the community. Building self-confidence and independence, women learn to see themselves as a unique creation of God, while living, thriving and growing in a safe, sober and comfortable home-like environment.

In the Midst of Your Storm

Do you long for sweet peace in the midst of your storm?

For a gladness and joy when your heart has been torn?

Do you long for a calm in your life filled with grief?

For an enduring strength when there’s doubt in belief?

Yes, I know you do, friend, for I’ve been where you are;

and tho try as we may we don’t get very far,

Until on Jesus we call, asking for help from above,

giving him all our trials and trusting in his supreme love.

Then he will give us his grace that will carry us through;

and he will strengthen our faith if we ask him to.

As we trust in him more, there will come a sweet

peace and comforting calm, until our headaches cease.

Ana My love for you never fades....

By:  Christina W

It's been a year now since you left
Fond memories of you are not
forgotten but cherishingly kept

For me to be where I'm at in life to
you I am in debt
For believing in me every time I
attempted to sing a song
You my loving sister always made
me feel like I belonged

But before long there I went to
doing my wrong
You taught me how to have a voice
And with love that every day is a
choice

To be or not to be?
That is the question
To be free from bondage that is
true happiness

Just for today I will live life to its
Fullest
Just for today with God’s help I will
fight thru the pain
Just for today I will fight for my
recovery and for my life
Just for today and every day I thank
God for you and others that taught
me how to truly live

Thank you for loving me until I
could love myself
If it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t be
Here

Thru the tears and thru the pain…
with God leading the way…strength
I will gain

Today I choose to live

You are truly missed
My love for you never fades…..
