There is Hope

Sheltering Wings was formed in the name and for the sake of Jesus Christ. We will extend the love and compassion of Christ to women and their children in the desperate circumstances of domestic abuse. Christ was never coercive or offensive and neither are our services. Our assistance will be offered to any victim of any background in the name of Christ.
