Deborah House Center
Deborah House provides a unique and critically needed sanctuary for severly abused girls, providing a healing sanctuary where hurt fades and is turned into hope.
Deborah House Center consists of two multifaceted residential care homes which provide a continuum of specialized treatment programs addressing the needs of Romania’s seriously abused girls.
The purpose of Deborah House is to offer rescue, sanctuary, therapy, counseling, education, and hope, in a Christian home environment, with the goal that each girl will reclaim her life from the shadow of her abuser.
Over the last seven years, Deborah House has successfully implemented post-trauma treatment programs for abused girls…programs that are unique within Romania. Providing much more than residential care, Deborah House assesses and treats both physical and sexual abuse, as well as related behavioral disorders. The foundation of the Deborah program is individual therapy, counseling, and intensive tutoring in both school work and vital social skills.
Ever since the first Deborah House opened in 2002, we have entered into a close working relationship with the local Romanian authorities, including the Timis County Agency for Child Protection.
Deborah House Center serves the entire community, including ethnic Rroma (gypsy) girls who face the additional obstacle of ethnic discrimination in Romania.
Our vision for Deborah House is not just to provide simple shelter but a spiritual one as well. These girls are not only victims of someone else’s abuse, but of poverty and starvation as well. Deborah House is about very young girls, condemned by society – even before they had a trial or lawyer – but forgiven, loved and redeemed by Jesus. We needed a facility to make a home for them, where they could find everything they did not receive from their own family. We believe the first and most important step toward their recovery is to remove them from this destructive environment to a place where they could discover the proper meaning of the word HOME. We hope to provide them will all the skills they need to live an independent and successful life…to begin the process of becoming the person God intended them to be.
Deborah House – by God’s grace and your help, will make a difference in the lives of these young girls.
