Our mission is to cultivate a nurturing interim living space for women with substance use disorder, supporting the hard work of learning to love God, self, neighbor and creation.
We believe true and lasting change is possible:
For here’s what I’m going to do . . . I’ll pour pure water over you and scrub you clean. I’ll give you a new heart, put a new spirit in you. I’ll remove the stone heart from your body and replace it with a heart that’s God-willed, not self-willed. I’ll put my Spirit in you and make it possible for you to do what I tell you and live by my commands . . .You’ll be my people! I’ll be your God!
- Ezekiel 36:24-28, (MSG)
"Experiencing God's Kingdom is so life giving
and I felt that joining Beneath the Shade was one way I could continue to experience His Kingdom at work. The testimonials have been incredible even in the early stages of this
work of God."
