Our Vision

Jacob's Well, a place overflowing with hope and opportunities for single women and their children to be restored as self-sufficient, productive community members for the glory of God.

Our Purpose

At Jacob’s Well, we believe God has called the body of Christ into the ministry of reconciliation. Our guiding scripture is 2 Corinthians 5:18...


“All this from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation.”

Jacob’s Well is a residential program in a structured and safe environment where participants can grow spiritually, gain education and develop healthy life skills.

We partner with other community organizations to provide: spiritual mentoring, educational opportunities, financial training, parenting classes and support groups for the moms. We will also focus on the physical, emotional, and educational development of their children.

Our program introduces families to Jesus Christ, the Christian faith and offers mentor teams so that mothers are surrounded with positive female role models and can experience healthy family relationships. Participants will meet with a life coach to develop life skills, learn new coping mechanisms, promote healthy relationships and encourage self-reflection. A family advocate will be on staff to assist participants with family services and set educational goals based on their interests and strengths to move them into sustainable employment.

Our Mission

Jacob's Well provides opportunity for life change to single women and their children seeking to break the cycle of hopelessness through structured programs offering:

  • ​Opportunity for personal relationships with Jesus Christ and a biblical community.
  • Temporary, transitional housing services.
  • Life skills coaching and training programs.
  • Family oriented community programs and events
