Update on our House Progress


God continues to move us towards the opening of our Refuge for Women - Chicago home!  One step at a time and we are almost there!  

We are excited to report that the Planning and Zoning Commission recently approved our special use permit for the Refuge home!  The next step is for their recommendation to go to the full city council for their vote in early July.   

Please join us in praying for God to grant us favor at the city council meeting so that they will accept the Planning and Zoning Commission's recommendation. 

What is the next step after a positive July vote?  God willing, here is the timeline we envision for the opening of our Chicago home:

  • We plan to close on the house very soon after our approval from the city council.
  • House preparations begin 
  • Staff and volunteer trainings to be completed 
  • A target open date of Aug 22!  

We are believing God for this vote, the closing, the house prep and then the welcoming of His precious daughters into healing and hope.

This has been, and continues to be, an exciting journey.  Thank you for being on the ride with us.

With God, all things are possible!  Matthew 19:26
