The mission of Carpenter Place is to nurture deeply hurting girls to a restored relationship with God, family, and community.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Carpenter Place mission is to nurture deeply hurting girls to a restored relationship with God, family, and community. Our goal is to help heal fractured relationships that have occurred within a family, and work towards reintegration of the daughter back within the home, when it is appropriate.

Each family and resident at Carpenter Place is held accountable through our Program Plan meetings. We address the family environment, and areas we feel need to be addressed, so when the child is ready to come home the setting is conducive for success. The resident is also expected to be self-aware of their behaviors, and be able to recognize the areas of change that need to occur.

Our Director of Campus Life and the House Parents work as a team with the resident to help address the behaviors and habits that are being exhibited. The Director of Campus Life also conducts weekly counseling sessions to challenge each resident towards a path of growth and improvement. The House Parents are in-home caregivers and are able to help the resident practice how to cooperate within a family-setting, and make the resident aware of behaviors that are happening.

Carpenter Place has a long history of successfully restoring hope to deeply hurting girls. Over the past two years we have redeveloped the Christian Family Program Plan, and have seen tremendous success. One area we would like to improve is through increasing our communication with families once their daughter has returned home. This way we could track long-term success more accurately, plus to continue to serve the families even after placement has concluded.
