Why Esthers House?

Almost every woman who walks through the doors of Esther’s House has been to a costly secular treatment program at least once. Often times, she leaves these treatment centers more broken than when she walked in.

SOME FACTS YOU SHOULD KNOW (STATISTICS PROVIDED BY MERCY MINISTRIES):

DRUG AND ALCOHOL ADDICTION

Illicit drug abuse in the U.S. has risen to its highest level in 8 years. The increase was particularly high among youth and young adults ages 12-25. In 2009, 8 percent of Americans, an estimated 21.8 million people, said they used illicit drugs. (National Institute on Drug Abuse-2010)

Nearly 72 percent of America’s students have consumed alcohol (more than a few sips) by the end of high school and more than 37 percent have done so by the 8th grade. (National Institute on Drug Abuse-2011)

PHYSICAL AND SEXUAL ABUSE

1 in 3 young women are sexually abused before age 18. (RAINN 2011)

54 percent of rapes of women occur before age 18; 22 percent of these rapes occur before age 12. (RAINN 2011)

SELF HARM

More than 50 percent of young women who self-harm have been sexually abused. (NIH 2010)

Through providing a Christ-centered, safe environment, Esther’s House of Redemption wants to change that. We seek to help women find freedom from life-controlling issues and hope for her future.
