What does your program offer?

  • We offer Intensive Prayer Ministry to survivors of severe abuse and trauma.
  • We provide a Community experience to help in healing. Many wounded people have not learned how to bond with others. They have had very poor relational skills (too clingy, too distant, unable to share themselves with others, unable to receive, unable to trust, etc.) Bonding and accountability are necessary parts of the healing process and community facilitates those needs. Read more about our community on our CARE Community page.
  • We sell materials through CARE Packaging that we believe are helpful in educating survivors, their care-givers, and therapists.

How long does healing take? How much prayer ministry will I need?

That is a question only God can answer. It is dependent on how long the trauma lasted, how you perceived the trauma, how the trauma impacted various areas of your life, how it impacted your belief system concerning God, Jesus and yourself. Remember healing is not a quick fix;. It is a process which takes time, energy and focus. Healing is intertwined with your walk with the Lord Jesus Messiah and your ability to fully trust Him and give to Him your self-sufficiency. It is learning to fear the Lord; instead of fearing man or Satan. It is a process of maturing spiritually.

What is the cost of prayer ministry?

Please call us at 231-745-0500 to get our current rates. We charge by the hour, which goes to the upkeep of our office building and to pay the salaries of the staff. Phone appointments are available at the same rate. Because we do not take insurance, Medicaid, or Medicare, we try to keep our charges reasonable.

Do you offer inpatient/housing services?

No, we do not offer either inpatient or safe-housing services. We do have a house where some of the women of our community live. There is sometimes space available for lease there. The survivors living in our community, who themselves are on a healing journey, support each other and any new people who come into the community. Read more about our Riverhouse.

Do you have a board of directors? What do your financial and personal accountability look like?

We are accountable to our Board of Directors. They bring a variety of skills to our organization. We have two board meetings each year to review our fiscal status and responsibilities, as well as our personal progress as leaders of the community.
