Helping, Restoring, Transforming
Who We Are
Hope Rescue Mission offers a long-term recovery program for people dealing with overwhelming personal issues such as addiction, domestic violence, or a criminal record. Recognizing that permanent change takes place at the heart level, this program addresses the underlying thoughts, feelings, and beliefs that drive destructive behavior.
Addictions, abuse, and homelessness can’t be solved through keeping a set of rules. They require transformation from the inside out. At the Grace House, women explore the root causes of addictions and other destructive behaviors within a safe, homelike environment that also welcomes and nurtures their children.
Long-term healing – The “Living in Freedom Everyday” LIFE Recovery Program involves a commitment of 18-months. Residents complete different phases of Christ-centered curriculum and therapy tailored to heal the wounds they previously numbed through addiction. Unlike 30, 60, or 90-day programs, the length of the program allows residents to go beyond behavior modification to true healing for the body, mind, and spirit.

Residents participate in a cost-share program for program expenses. For those entering the program with any type of income (TANF, SSI/SSDI, child support, spousal support, retirement, etc.), 60% is saved for future housing needs upon program completion and 40% is allocated back to the program to offset the nearly $2,000 monthly cost per resident. When residents begin employment during the late stages of the program, the same 60/40 allocation is applied to earned income as well.
From our clients
… over 18 months ago, I believed my life was over. I had lost my relationships with my children, family and friends, and in my diseased mind, had lost my relationship with God. I was no longer a registered nurse and was unemployable for even the smallest of jobs. I was facing being evicted from my home, and through all of that was seeking more and more alcohol to relieve my pain. The alcohol stopped working, and I had decided death would be better than what I was going through. It was in that deep, dark place that I realized that Jesus was there with me; He brought me out of there and led me to recovery at the Grace House.
These last 18 months have not been easy. Physical sobriety was the first step, but not the most difficult. For me, the most difficult part was changing everything I thought about myself, and in some ways what I thought about God. The curriculum in the program was challenging and exactly what I needed to learn about myself, addiction, and why I continued to relapse over and over again.
The emphasis on finding my identity in Christ through the classes, Bible studies, morning worship and Bible reading, and the other residents and staff supporting me, was crucial in my recovery, as was spending personal time in prayer and getting closer to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Through the prayers of so many, I successfully completed the 18-month program! Those prayers, and a lot of hard work, allowed me to obtain my RN license in Montana and I am now working as a hospice nurse in Missoula. I am so thankful and grateful for the love and prayers from all who support the Grace House and Hope Rescue Mission- I truly believe I “am fearfully and wonderfully made”!
Grace does not depend on what we have done for God but rather what God has done for us.
… who was trying to get a friend into Grace House. He told me about his friends’ troubles and her desire to be free of her addictions. He had been keeping her in his home to keep her safe. She happened to be there when I called and I was able to talk to her. She told me a little about herself and was very interested in coming to Grace House when we had an opening. I told her we would be having an opening soon. After talking she turned the phone back over to him. At that time he expressed to me how much he wanted her to do the program at Grace House. He said his Mom had done the program at Grace House and it completely changed her life. He knew that she also worked a year at Grace House after she graduated to help other women. She has stayed sober and is moving forward with her life and reconciliation. He said there was a lot of healing that needed to be done with family members, but they are working on healing. His mom’s constant prayer in the time she was with us was to have reconciliation with her kids. What a blessing it is to beat Grace House and see women transformed into the Godly women God intended them to be.
… program two years ago. After 15 years without a driver’s license, she has been able to get her license, as well as save and buy herself a car! Her family is grateful to see the progress that she has made as God is still moving and Restoring her life.
Cindy’s son expressed to us how the Grace House had completely changed his mom’s life. She has stayed sober and is moving forward with her life and reconciliation. He said there was a lot of healing that needed to be done with family members, but they are working on that healing. His mom’s constant prayer in the time she was with us was to have reconciliation with her kids. What a blessing it is to be at Grace House and see women transformed into the Godly women He intended them to be!
