About Beauty for Ashes Women's Homes

We encourage women to stay in the program for 12 – 18 months. We believe it is imperative for their success to stay in the program long enough to become grounded in who they are in Christ, become strong enough to be independent, and yet not so long that they become dependent on the program we offer.

We are located in Bradenton, Florida.
Who Our Program is For

Our program is for women struggling with hurts, habits, and hang-ups; Women who are in transition from places like prison, county jail, or abusive relationships.
Our program is for women who strive to become independent but need a helping hand to get there.
Our program is for women who are unsatisfied with their old lives and wish to learn to lead a Christ centered life.

Phase 1: A period of approximately 3 months where the women adjust to life free from destructive living habits. They will learn constructive coping skills, abandoning spontaneous behaviors of acting and reacting in order to survive and obtain their desired and immediate need. During this phase they will begin attending recovery classes, learning to plan for the future, learn about their behavior patterns of old dysfunctional behaviors, and learn about making choices that bring about more positive consequences in life.

Phase 2: The women will continue school for GED, learn job-seeking skills, and look for work. The women will participate in budgeting classes and be required to save money for their future outside of Beauty for Ashes. During this time they will continue to live out newly taught life skills and will still be receiving support from Spiritual mentors and going to recovery classes.

Phase 3: The women will have developed renewed and Godly views of themselves and will be more adequately prepared to maintain a healthy living style outside of the program. Throughout the final phase they will be searching for new living arrangements where they will be independently providing for themselves and living on their own. Realizing the need for support from other grounded Christians and understanding that He is the Rock of their new foundation, they will continue living a renewed and restored life with purpose.
