Our $350,000 gala goal is the amount of funds needed to operate and staff our four homes and serve our increasing number of families (in 2019 we’ll grow to a capacity of 52 women and children).

This goal provides the necessary funds for completing this year and entering 2019 able to serve in life-giving ways to help families move forward, free from abuse.

As of October 11, we have raised $272,000! Our current balance needed is $78,000.

We welcome your support offered as a one time gift, a recurring gift, a pledge, or legacy gift. We are so grateful for your generous help!

Your "Post Gala" gift can be used to meet this goal with the designation of "2018 Gala."

You can Donate Here

A final report will be provided to those on our mailing list later in November!

Thank you to all who attended our Gala, and to all of you for your prayers, and your support!

With joy,

Thank you so much to Eagle Brook Church - Spring Lake Park for throwing an event called “Share the Love” for our women and kids!

Everyone had a wonderful time eating brunch, meeting new people, and hearing a powerful testimony of what God can do in the life of someone who has experienced abuse.

Thanks again EBC Spring Lake Park!

A Monumental Moment

Recently baptized resident, Amanda, with her sweet baby. 

A few years before coming to us, one of our women accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior. 

Although a new creation, the trauma from years of abuse and hardship haunted her, and a lack of Godly guidance kept her from knowing how much Jesus loved her and desired to heal her. 

Through the love and support she's experienced at The Dwelling Place and at the church she's been attending, Eagle Brook Church-Spring Lake Park, God has blessed her with incredible growth and healing! 

To proclaim that she no longer lives for herself, but for Jesus Christ, she was baptized in January at her church, Eagle Brook. 

Today, she says she feels more free than ever before! Thank you for your prayers and support, friends. Moments like this only happen because of God's mercy and people like you. Thank you!
