Glory House hosted a open house inviting the community to tour their Hempstead home. Glory House Recovery Incorporated is a unique emergency recovery residence program for women who are struggling to recover from addiction. Glory House provides bed, food, clothing, and a safe environment for those who are in need. They also reach beyond the physical needs by offering the women an opportunity to make life-changing decision. They empower those who pass through it’s doors.
According to the National Network to End Domestic Violence, in just one day — September 15, 2009 –more than 35,000 U.S. domestic violence victims found refuge in the life-saving programs of emergency shelters or transitional housing.
More than 9,000 requests for help — about 5,500 of them for housing — had to be turned down, largely because of a lack of funding.
Terenna Williams, Executive Director would love to spend more with the residence of Glory House instead of fighting for funding. However, It’s a contant battle as funding decreases and requests for help increases.
As a community, we need to support programs such as Glory House. Carrie Solages will continue to help the programs that need it most.
