A circumstance or event of great importance or consequence to alter the course of one's life.
This definition is why we chose the name Momentous Home. We are so blessed and excited to have the opportunity to help others. We do our very best to help the women that come to the home to get their feet planted so that they may reach their goals.
We believe good people can make bad decisions.
Sometimes it is because we simply act before we contemplate fully the consequences, other times it is all we know. Chaos, instability and dangerous habits all can be a tough things to change and leave behind. That's where we come in!
While we are NOT a treatment center:
We work in conjunction with probation/parole and are approved for TD4 leg monitors.
Also our home is approved in some CPS cases for monitored returns! (to be determined individually by CPS case worker)
For some the need
may be for a place to work a recovery program without being tempted to take that first drink or drug. Others in the home may need a safe, nonthreatening and abuse free atmosphere. No matter the reason or circumstance, we welcome all women from all walks of life. We have hope and faith that the end goal is to better their lives. We believe that with positive encouragement, thinking and circumstance, anything is possible for these women. Our home is successful when our ladies are succeeding on their journey through life.
The guests that come to stay at this property are given a pillow, fresh linens and a decent bed to sleep in. Guests will receive food and necessities to help get started. For the first seven to fourteen days, we provide a daily bus pass to those who need it, all amenities of a home, as well as a safe environment for our guests free of alcohol, drugs and violence.
There are regulations and guidelines that the guests must follow in order to continue to be a guest at the home. She must have a job in seven days. A minimum of three NA or AA meetings are required each week, two of which are offered in the home one AA and one NA. She must attend a mandatory relapse prevention class that a LCDC teaches each Sunday from 6:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m. Our LCDC also offers individual and family counseling. Random drug and alcohol test are given. We ask that our guests respect anonymity and are considerate of other women in the home. There is a curfew at 11:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. with quiet time from 9:00 p.m. to 9:00 a.m. to accommodate various work schedules and children's bedtime/school schedules.
This home is a hand up not a handout. There are registration fees and daily room rates. Our goal is to help our guests learn to live clean, sober and independent. To live a life so that they can become a self-sufficient productive member of society. We believe there is hope for a better future free of violence, abuse, drugs and alcohol, with self confidence and purpose.

"Starting Over Again"
In this situation, building yourself again is really hard, and takes too much time and years to be you again. But don't worry it's a braver you, the smarter you, and wiser you!
Find your place and embrace everything. Think of something good and everything you want in your life.
And there you'll find you and you can start rebuilding again, a better you, with better walls on it.
My heart and my deepest gratitude goes to all the loving, kind, wonderful ladies here at Momentous Home and most of all for the Most Kind, generous lady, Melissa who put this home together to help ALL women get back and start over again in their lives. And I want to say thank you to everyone of you! I would have missed this part of my journey, so again I am so grateful and honored to be a part of Momentous Home! Which means "New Beginnings" to all.
