Our Mission

Peaceful Waters assists women in the transition from a higher level of treatment, hospitalization, incarceration, abuse (physical, emotional, sexual, and substance), homelessness, and other struggles, while helping them succeed in their recovery. Our programs provide the tools the women need to achieve and maintain a healthy and independent life. We provide on site training in recovery, relapse prevention, life skills, work ethics, physical health, spiritual health, behavioral health, and family life. Our quality living arrangements in a peaceful and loving atmosphere promote wholeness and a sense of belonging.

During the initial intake interview we obtain an overview of the client’s skills and needs to identify obtainable goals, develop objectives, and provide ongoing coaching toward achieving their goals. The client screening process gathers information about the individual to include substance abuse history, and assess for current needs. We will accept, on an individual basis, potential clients who do not need hospitalization or detoxification but may have a positive alcohol or drug screen.

We teach basic life skills based on individual needs and connect to other training needs as the client identifies them. We provide referrals to other resources including health, mental illness, education, religious organizations, and other supports. The program is completed in six months. After program completion clients may continue as a resident for up to a year to complete their transition back into their community. 

Kia's Korner is a place where our ladies learn basic skills such as customer service and retail skills and accepts donations of all types.
