Our Focus

Our program and services are designed to meet the needs of women who find themselves in the following types of life situations:

Addiction Recovery


Mental & Physical Health Issues


Our housing provides a safe haven for single women and women with children.

Key support services include:  recovery coaching, peer-to-peer mentoring, bible studies, transportation and 12 step programs.

Housing Program

Our Ministry recovery house will be helping women in the community to live responsibly and with accountability to maintain personal sobriety, build a relationship with Jesus, work a job, and perform community service.

We will provide case management and residents will need to show a commitment and willingness to fully participate in the program

Jo Anna House II is a women's recovery ministry that prepares single women in crisis for self-sufficiency in a safe, Christ-centered, drug free environment that will allow them to make a successful transition to permanent housing.  

To that end, we provide housing and programs that provide them with the support system they need to make life changes that have long-term benefits.

Our Ministry

It's pleasure to be the director of the women.

I started this ministry because I am an alumni of the prison system.  The Akron Bible Church led me to Jesus in 1994 from the Summit County jail.  Many years I backslid.  In 2006, Jesus tugged at my heart and said come back my child.

I'm blessed to have been delivered on 11-20-2007 from drugs and alcohol.  I share the message of Jesus and the hope of deliverance to others about how our Savior has changed my life and can change theirs too.
