This program provides holistic care – spirit, mind, and body – to homeless and housing vulnerable women and children with families.
The Women and Family area of the Shreveport-Bossier Rescue Mission provides a safe, comfortable environment for single women and families with children. All of their needs are provided, from bedding and clothing to meals and hygiene needs. The Rescue Mission also provides medical and dental services, life skill classes, and nightly chapel services. Women are encouraged after seven days to make the life-altering decision to enter the nine-month Discipleship Training Program (DTP) and prepare for successful, independent living. DTP classes include anger management training, domestic abuse awareness, health and nutrition education, and financial literacy.
