Philosophy

Our philosophy at the NARROW ROAD Home is to thoughtfully create an individualized program to meet specific needs for each woman who enters the Home.

Personal and Family programming and our supportive healing groups will be focussed on an entire life transformation. It is our desire to create an atmosphere for change and growth leading each woman to a place of self-discovery, to find out WHO she is as and how she was designed to flourish in God’s purposeful plan from the moment of her conception.

A New Life

The women we serve at the Narrow Road Home will leave this Healing Home of Hope and Recovery as VICTORS, as women set FREE from negative thinking, life-paralyizing addictions and self-destructive habits and patterns. She will scarcely be able to recognize her new self.

We are not meant to walk alone and our vision encompasses not only Wholeness for the seeking woman but her precious family whom is also in desperate need of the same reprieve and healing grace.

Successful Transitioning and Recovery is also journey to be walked through in partnership with a supportive community of believers and encouragers. By providing a nurturing atmosphere, coupled with dedicated and loving mentors, many whom have walked this path before them, we can offer a home of Healing and a home of HOPE. HOPE restored and reclaimed for her and her entire family.

Our Recovery Home

Where we heal.

Local builder Billy Wakeford constructed this two-and-one-half storey brick home in 1909. John Noble and his family resided here until about 1927 when they had another home built farther west on Macleod Trail. The house was then converted for use as a nurses’ residence.The Noble house is the only example of a brick Queen Anne style residence in High River. Like many Queen Anne houses across western Canada, the Noble residence is less ornate in architectural detailing and simpler in plan than its counterparts in eastern Canada.

The house, nevertheless, has many of the characteristic design features of the style, including a massive offset tower with bell-cast roof and a large open front veranda. Decorative brickwork around the tower, leaded glass in the front window transoms, and in the Palladian-style window in the front gabled dormer, add variety and serve to relieve the somewhat massive and austere appearance of the structure.Altogether, the Noble House remains one of the finest middle-class residences built High River before World War 1 (source: Museum of the Highwood).
