Women must undergo an application and interview process to be admitted into the Butterfly Freedom House. Once residents, women are required to participate in two Bible studies each week and must attend church on a weekly basis. Other mandatory programming is brought into the house where the women can learn about different life skills.
We hope to encourage residents to pursue their faith as they rebuild their lives in Ames and transition back into the community. Each woman must get a job and contribute financially toward her stay at Butterfly Freedom House, while receiving discipleship, mentoring, and applicable programming. The board and a group of incredible volunteers offer continual support to residents throughout their stay in the house.
