It’s a big day for John 3:16 Mission.
A brand new facility is now open for its Women’s Recovery Program.
Organizers say 12 women will be housed at the old Choteau Elementary School for a year-long, faith-based program.
It’s designed to help the women recover from problems that led them to homelessness.
Organizers say they’ve recognized a growing need for women to have a full-time, live-in recovery program.
“I’ve been praying for this place for ten years,” said senior pastor Steve Whitaker. “Really, for longer for a place that’s semi-rural where people can get away from the hustle and bustle of downtown.”
Women can start moving into the facility in about a month or two.
