We began just over thirteen years ago with the Risen House in Jerome and since then have added two more houses (Serenity and Lazarus) in Twin Falls. We now have room for about 30 men and women. All our managers have gone through prison and are now leading successful, productive lives.
We have built a quality reputation of being firm yet compassionate with the residents. Those who are serious, appreciate the structure and accountability that are part of the homes. We have over a dozen residents each year who find jobs, gather some funds, get emotionally and socially stable, reconnect with family and move out successfully on their own. We have long term ex-residents scattered over the Magic Valley who completed probation and are productive citizens.
Our mottos are:
A Hand Up, Not a Handout
To Empower and Not to Enable
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord.
Plans to prosper you and not to harm you.
Plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
