The women of John 3:17 enjoying the outdoors after class.

John 3:17 is a 501(c)(3) faith-based recovery center for women. Women who have made a commitment to overcome addictions, make positive lifestyle changes, develop spiritually, improve parenting skills and become productive members of society spend their time in a safe and nurturing environment.

Currently John 3:17 can house 40 women. Several women contact the ministry every week to be admitted, but most are turned away for lack of room. The desire is to expand the ministry by building six additional cottages that will accommodate 12 women each.


The fixed monthly expense of the ministry is $26,000, or roughly $700 per woman. Each cottage will cost $240,000 with the goal of building six cottages over time. You can help with expenses by contributing securely through PayPal on the John 3:17 website.
