helping the homeless
Our mission is to provide a safe, sober, rehabilitative environment for the ladies and their children that come to Joppa House. Our program empowers women to remain substance-free, while mentoring and training them in the life skills they need, providing them a healthy, stable environment in which to raise their children as they begin to transition and sustain independent living.
Joppa House was birthed out of a desire to help the multiple clients who came through Third Day Fellowship & Outreach’s doors that were homeless or facing homelessness; creating a program that can break the cycle of poverty that is plaguing this generation. Trends have changed since Joppa House opened its doors in 2014. Most of our residents are struggling with addictions. To meet this specific and prevalent need, Joppa House has added recovery programming, in addition to our original mission.
Joppa House Ministries is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization. We are funded and supported by private donors and resident contributions, with two-thirds of our annual budget generated through private donations. All donations are tax deductible.
