Our Mission

"Magdalene Serenity House is a community of healing for women survivors of sexual exploitation and addiction as they move toward a life that is spiritually rich, economically self-sufficient, emotionally full, and drug free."

Life at Magdalene is patterned after the Benedictine model for communal living—rooted in hospitality, mutual respect, reverence, and love for all.  

For two years our residents receive housing, stipends, medical, dental, and mental health services, education and job training, without expense to the women. We assist all residents in applying for SNAP benefits and health insurance.
