A Support Community for Women

Our Program

Narrow Road Home offers a continuum of support and care through customized residential recovery programs for women struggling with domestic violence, abuse,  addiction and life crisis.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy at Narrow Road Home is to thoughtfully create an individualized program to meet specific needs for each woman who enters our home. Each woman is supportively guided on how to take an accurate inventory of her lifestyle in a safe, supportive environment.

The first priority at the Narrow Road Home is to acknowledge and admit that at a deep level we are broken. Surrender (giving up) is the beginning of a new relationship with ourselves, others and God. This opening in which surrender creates helps us begin to develop a trusting relationship with ourselves, others and God. These new emboldened connections help break down the walls that keep us bound in self-destruction. Our goal is to offer you a lifeline of hope whereby all your buried dreams can be discovered.

We professionally facilitate and coordinate interventions with families, loved ones, support workers and those involved with the potential client. If you require an intervention for a loved one contact us here.

At NRH you can expect to find your smile again. While we engage in a myriad of educational treatment-based modules, we also make cookies, go hiking, have pajama parties, work at the Narrow Road Creperie & Co. and attend events. Amidst all that we also offer career counselling and networks for those needing to re-establish themselves in the work force.

Testimonials

There is a great need for the services Kim, her staff and the home can provide. Personally, I have been working with Kim on overcoming a childhood trauma that had a hold on me for over 40 years. I never fully understood the damage done and who I was until, with Kim’s experience and guidance, I was able to lay it all out before Christ where he brings in true light and healing. I am sure there is a lifetime of discovery and work yet to be done, but it’s a powerful beginning.

I came to Narrow Road telling myself and believing so many lies. Lies about who I was ‘supposed’ to be, lies about what was ‘supposed’ to make me happy and bring me joy and the lie that alcohol brought me life. Narrow Road, along with my family and friends, could speak truth into my life and bring light to the obstacles and struggles that had brought me to such a dark place. So much of the battle is in our minds. It is a cleaning out process of old beliefs and patterns of thinking. When you learn how to take every thought captive, you live with great ease.

With 6 Detox stays, 4 treatment centers, a DUI charge,and a suicide attempt; It’s safe to say I had hit rock bottom! Now I get to wake up everyday free from believing the lies the enemy tells me, that I am worthless, a failure, and a burden to society.
