Worthy Women Recovery Home

Thank you to 96.7 FM WCOE The Eagle for broadcasting LIVE from our home and to our sponsors: Red House BBQ, Kabelin ACE Hardware and Town & Country Florist

A wonderful day to share our appreciation for the City of La Porte Police and Fire Departments - their GREAT WORK saved our home, protected our neighbors and kept MOSES (Sonshine's cat) from losing all nine lives!!

We are so grateful for the community support shown to the Worthy Women Recovery Home since 2011 and recently after our fire. Many came to see how fast we are RECOVERING HOPE and to help us with the furnishings needed for our home.
Soon we'll fill our home with women who need us.
