To provide effective, high quality, faith-based addictions services, resources and support to women seeking recovery from substance abuse. To provide necessary support and nurture to those in need, encourage, and create an atmosphere in which women can develop into confident, capable, healthy contributing members of our local community.
Mission Heart was opened in 2000 with the goal of providing a loving and supportive environment for their members. This non profit 501(c)(3) is a women's faith based organization. This program in the Baton Rouge area has helped individuals to rediscover themselves through their sobriety. With three transitional homes in close proximity, members are able to reinvent themselves in a positive and healthy environment through supportive care.
Mission Heart is a safe, loving, and life changing place – the perfect place to start your journey back into society. We are a group of women that are supervised by both on-site and off-site leadership. We provide love and support for each other in friendship, prayer, and mentorship. Mission Heart began in 2000 with the vision to provide a safe living environment for women in crisis. It is our desire to nurture women back into society by not only providing for their physical needs – but also by supporting and encouraging their relationship with God. It all started with the house known as Mission Heart Station, and then quickly grew to include Hope Villa, and now we have our house for leaders, Agape.
Women come to Mission Heart from all walks of life. Most ladies arrive from our local community. The residents work together to keep a clean, welcoming home. Not only do our women grow spiritually, but also as a family, becoming lifelong friends who hold each other accountable to God’s calling on each of their lives.
Group therapies are evidence based; including check-in, art, exercise, and gardening. Other weekly activities include, church, 12-step meetings, and Bible study. The women of Mission Heart are urged to be active in the community. Mission Heart can help change your life. Please contact us. We would love for you to be part of the family.
Mission Heart is a faith based sober living community and currently operates three residential women’s group homes in South Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Our group homes Mission Heart Station and Hope Villa are located next to each other in residential neighborhoods and serve women recovering from substance abuse and other addictions. Across the street is Agape, our home for women who have lived at Mission Heart awhile, accomplished their goals, and are peer leaders and mentors to the ladies in the other houses.
We are a group of women who are self-governing with
on-site and off-site leadership. Our homes are structured living environments for women reentering our local community. We feel that immense growth and change can happen in a year. This is why we ask for a one year commitment to our program. Let us walk with you, support you, and nurture you in this first year of recovery.
Family is extremely important to Mission Heart. We encourage women to reunite with their families and children are welcome to visit with their mothers. Mission Heart wants the bond between mother and child re-formed through love, support and relationship with God. We offer the opportunity for women to learn to be a part of their families again and show the love they have to offer. We love our women and want to help them grow into the women and mothers God wants them to be. Weekly activities include Bible study, church, and 12-step meetings. The women of Mission Heart are urged to be active in the community. Mission Heart can help change your life. Please contact us. We would love for you to be part of the family.
