Our Beliefs

Joppa House is a Christ-centered home with a voluntary program for women who are in active recovery and/or homeless due to a lack of support, resources, and/or life skills.

The primary purpose for our Christ-centered approach is to provide a place where the Holy Spirit can work as we provide a safe, rehabilitative, and structured environment in which women may come to know and accept the love and forgiveness of Christ resulting in changed lives, whereby achieving a self-sufficiency through a dependency on Christ the Lord.
