Jacob’s Well is a residential program that provides an opportunity for life change to single moms and their children seeking to break the cycle of hopelessness and poverty. Jacob’s Well supports residents in their spiritual growth, educational goals, and healthy life skills development to guide them in becoming self-sufficient and productive members in our community. We partner with other community organizations to provide: spiritual mentoring, educational opportunities, financial training, parenting classes and support groups for the moms. We will also focus on the physical, emotional, and educational development of their children.
Our program introduces families to Jesus Christ, the Christian faith and offers mentor teams so that mothers are surrounded with positive female role models and can experience healthy family relationships. Participants will meet with a life coach to develop life skills, learn new coping mechanisms, promote healthy relationships and encourage self-reflection. A family advocate will be on staff to assist participants with family services and set educational goals based on their interests and strengths to move them into sustainable employment.
