Jessie’s Place

A safe haven for women and children that offers Christ-centered support and counseling, helping them to become strong and self-sufficient.


What Is Jessie’s Place?

Jessie’s Place is the women and children’s shelter of the Jimmie Hale Mission ministries. Established in 1998, Jessie’s Place is a haven for homeless and hurting women and children seeking shelter while preparing to reach self-sufficiency.

What Do We Do?

At Jessie’s Place, we give women and children the chance for transformation. Within our walls, despair becomes new hope, sorrow becomes joy, and those broken and hurting become strong and whole. As we strive to be Christ’s vessel of love in the world, we look to nurture the spirit and create independent living with education remediation, job readiness, and most importantly, the boundless healing found in God’s Word.

That’s why at Jessie’s Place, we offer more than a refuge. For once inside our doors, we can give women and children the way out.

What Do We Offer?

For guests, we are a place of refuge from a hostile world or specific danger in their lives, a place where God’s Word gives them the strength and confidence to pursue:

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

For the community, we provide an invaluable service by not only shielding women and children from a host of sufferings, but also by helping our guests become independent, self-sufficient members of society.
