"I am the door. If anyone enters through me,

he will be saved."  

John 10:9a

 

Martha's House is a transformational house for women re-entering society from prison or jail. Martha's House has been founded on Jesus Christ and is served by those that share in the cause of Christ to provide unique opportunities for women re-entering society after confinement in prison. Martha's House exists to foster TRANSFORMATION in the lives of women through the life giving work and word of Christ. The House is a place of peace where women are invited to grow in relationship with God in His Word, prayer and fellowship with those who have placed their trust in Jesus.  As women gain confidence in who they are in Christ, Martha's House then provides opportunities for job skill training and other courses to aid with transition back into society.

Find out where God is working and join Him.  He is at work in The Cornerstone Community, located in the South Dallas/Fair Park area.  Martha’s House is a transformational and discipleship ministry for ladies who were previously incarcerated.

 

Your support and encouragement is needed to allow us to support and disciple ladies who sincerely desire another chance.

 

We seek God’s blessings for the residents of Martha’s House…  We are confident that God’s desire is to use His ministry to take territory from the evil one.

But then I will win her back once again.  I will lead her out into the desert and speak tenderly to her there. I will return her vineyards to her and transform the Valley of the Trouble in to a Door (gateway) of Hope. She will give herself to me there, as she did long ago when she was young, when I freed her from her captivity in Egypt.   Hosea 2:14-15 NLT
