JOHN 3:17 is not just a recovery center; it’s a family. The residents maintain a sense of community and belonging by helping with household chores and grounds keeping. This provides teaching opportunities and helps build positive relationships. Each resident is expected to work in the community as opportunities arise.

As the name suggests, JOHN 3:17 is faith-based, with an emphasis on Christ as Deliverer. As each resident grows in a relationship with God, she will learn to live by His standards, thus developing healthier relationships with others.

Residents are taught through a mentoring relationship with a Christian woman who resides at the JOHN 3:17 home and with other Christian women who volunteer their time. There is also guided Bible study, GED classes and training in parenting and life skills.
