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 learned and other times it is all we know. Chaos, instability and dangerous habits all can be a tough thing to change and leave behind. For some it may be a need 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, positive thinking and positive circumstance anything is possible for these women. Our home is successful when our ladies are succeeding on their journey through life.
The women that come to stay at our home are given a pillow, fresh linens and a comfortable bed to sleep in. Ladies 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. We provide all amenities of a home, as well as a safe environment for women free of alcohol, drugs and violence. Ladies may stay at the home as long as they need to. We do not put a time limit on their stay.
