Help Us Heal The Hurting


Healed and Restored transforms female victims of trauma and assault into strong survivors who positively impact the world, believe their worthiness, and feel God's love.


Healed & Restored is a ministry in the Charlotte area that strengthens women suffering after physically and mentally traumatic experiences through therapy, workshops and retreats.

Grounded in Catholic teachings and holistic programs, women will be transformed and experience God's tremendous healing power and embrace their identity as a beloved daughter of God.

Ultimately, Healed and Restored will create a safe, faith-filled home for women to receive mind, body, spirit and soul care, free of charge.


Help young women free of charge without accepting state or federal funds or those from any individual who might interfere with our freedom to share Christ and his Church.

Our Prayer

True Freedom Through Christ That Will Last A Lifetime

In this broken world we live in, it is no wonder so many young people are struggling. I believe girls are especially hurting. Many are feeling unloved and often wondering if there’s anything to live for. Their hurt turns into hurting themselves through cutting, eating disorders, and addictions.  Many also suffer from anxiety and depression.

Our goal is to help these young women as quickly as possible after they have gone through trauma. We will help them realize that God desires to heal every single one of his beloved children. We will teach them that the evil one is a master manipulator.  As soon as a person is hurt, the devil begins to plant all kinds of lies in the soul.  Some of these lies are: God doesn’t love you, Everything that happened is your fault, You should be forever ashamed, and You will never find happiness.

At Healed and Restored, we are committed to sharing stories of hope and transformation so that people will know that lasting freedom through Christ is possible. It is our prayer that the Healed and Restored program will impact the lives of many young women, who find themselves in bondage and without hope. Healed and Restored will help them find true freedom through Christ that will last a lifetime.

Our Program

Our Services

Our Charlotte-based Christian program is designed to assist in healing the whole person;  body, mind, and spirit.

Currently, Healed and Restored is focusing on finding local young women who have experienced trauma and are in need of healing.  This is done through relationships with other small ministries, clergy or through our social media. Healed and Restored offers the women a path to healing by way of therapy sessions, at no cost to the client, and with healing focused retreats, both locally and in other states. 

  The ultimate goal of Healed and Restored is to have a home for women to live in that is a safe, faith-filled space, where they will receive whole person care, free of charge.

Teaching that our Lord Jesus Christ is the only true healer, the home will offer classes to prepare residents for a purpose-filled life after leaving Healed and Restored. Trusting in Jesus to provide for their spiritual, mental, and physical needs and knowing that Jesus gives gifts to his people in great abundance are two graces that the residents will receive residing in the home.

 Residents Are Asked To

PRAY for each other, our team and our benefactors.

We also encourage them to be involved and help with fundraising and social media events that will take place throughout the year.

"Compassion asks us to go where it hurts, to enter into a place of pain, to share in brokenness, fear, confusion and anguish. Compassion challenges us to cry out with those in misery, to mourn with those who are lonely, to weep with those in tears. Compassion requires us to be weak, vulnerable with the vulnerable, and powerless with the powerless. Compassion means full immersion in the condition of being human."

- Henry Newman
