Desens House

Setting Generations Free One Life At A Time

ABOUT US

We believe in the power of transforming lives through hope and healing

MISSION

The Desens House is dedicated to setting generations free from substance dependency one life at a time. We are a non-clinical, faith-based, long term residential rehabilitation program that provides a life long network of support through mentors, motivational therapy, counseling and vocational training. We believe that recovery involves the whole person: minds, bodies and souls; and is possible with the support and dedication of a committed community.

Our Mission is to come alongside women in recovery and provide our participants with the tools needed to rebuild a life. Through our long-term residency program, our participants will have the opportunity to build a solid foundation of stable and supportive relationships, as well as learn the skills necessary to live productive independent lives within the community.

COME JOIN US


We can’t reshape our own perception of how we view ourselves. Healing requires friends, mentors, and a community in which we can love and be loved.

EVENTS AROUND THE COMMUNITY

We will be hosting Zumba at West Park every Wednesday until August 4! Bring Water and a Friend!

Introducing: The Summer Book Club Series

Hope and healing starts one life at a time and creates a generational domino effect of freedom. 


Vision Forward

June 2021

“I see The Desens House operating in the space between verse 1-4 of Isaiah 61, coming alongside and empowering generations of women to build back the “ancient ruins of their lives and families.” Our desire is to support and encourage these women, who are worth fighting for, and hold them up as they slowly rebuild their lives and learn new patterns of behavior.
