What We Do

Our Mission: To enrich the lives of women who are wounded by the negative circumstances of life.

Ruth House is a shelter for women who possess a strong desire to overcome their wounds, addictions, and addictive behaviors. We are dedicated to empowering women to meet their needs, work on their problems, and become healed, responsible, and productive members of society. Our goal is to help them focus on recovering from crisis through a new or renewed understanding of their identity in Christ. This is accomplished through a research-based, systematic program that includes Bible study, group and individual counseling, and creating healthy relationships with the community.

Ruth House is located in North Lake County, near downtown Umatilla. The house is a traditional cracker style Florida home. We are able to minister to 10 women at a time. There are rooms dedicated to helping single women as well as women with children.


“In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us.”
