The birth of a baby! Another young woman has chosen LIFE for her unborn child.

A resident found a job that fits her schedule and location.

A surprise opening in schedule for surgery allowed a resident’s child to have tubes put in her ears much sooner than anticipated.

Continued opportunities to present the work of Ruth Harbor Ministries to churches and groups.

A group of volunteers has offered to complete the carpet demo as part of the redesign, saving our ministry time and money.

Supportive groups have donated items posted on our Wish List (link).

Back Up House Parents have been available to cover open shifts when needed. Thank you!

For funds raised through our Year-End Campaign.

Our Carlisle home has been certified by DHS. We can now serve minor-age residents there.
