Jessie’s Place, located in the heart of downtown Birmingham, is a safe haven for women and children that offers Christ-centered support and counseling to help encourage, strengthen and empower those enduring life’s hardships.

We work hard to give women and children the chance for transformation by creating an environment where despair becomes hope, sorrow becomes joy and the broken and hurting become strong and whole. As we strive to show Christ’s love in the word, we look to nurture the spirit, strengthen confidence and move clients toward independent living through education and job readiness. Inside our doors, we provide women and children with the way out.

Our residents receive:

  • Daily life skills training
  • Bible studies
  • Case management and counseling
  • Education remediation and job readiness
  • Children’s programs, including play therapy

We believe that providing refuge for recovery as well as spiritual and educational support will ensure that these women will become strong and self-sufficient members of society once again.

We are located at:  2305 5th Avenue North, Birmingham, AL 35203 – Click here for directions.
