We are preparing to receive our first clients in January 2018.
Please continue to pray for our Director, staff and clients.
Manna House is located at 229 South Erie Street in Mercer.
MANNA HOUSE OPEN HOUSE!
Sunday, September 24th from 2-6
The goal of Manna House is to serve as a central location in which to house the individuals participating in our program (more specifically those recently released and or participants needing housing). The goal of our programs themselves is and has always been to serve as something similar to the government’s CCCs but adding an additional component that is not traditionally addressed during their time of transition in these facilities. We will plug these individuals into our support system designed to foster the beginning of their journey to a new life. Within the framework of our program, the participants will attend Life Skills Classes, Spiritual Enrichment Sessions, Work Therapy and Support Meetings. They will work with professional counselors, mentors, local clergy and lay personnel to deal with the underlying issues they have dealt with throughout their lives in an attempt to rebuild their lives in a new and more meaningful way. The program will maintain a strict adherence to the regimented accountability set forth and we are able to do so through the network of organizations we have developed who provide services to our participants.

There are currently 53 female inmates in the Mercer County Jail. These individuals are paroled on an average of 3 per month. While every individual who participates in our programs will not be housed in our new facility we plan to maintain a steady enrollment of 4-8 women housed in the Manna House at all times.
We are able to do what we do by providing for the needs of the house with revenue from our Thrift Store and with donations from people like you.
