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.
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 space for women to receive mind, body, spirit and soul care, free of charge.
To help young women free of charge; not accept state or federal funding or from any individual who would interfere with our freedom to share Christ and his Church.
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 is being translated into hurting themselves by cutting, eating disorders, and addictions. They are also suffering from anxiety and depression.
Our goal is to help these young women as soon as possible after they have gone through trauma. We will help them see how God desires to heal every single one of his beloved children. We will teach them how the evil one is a master manipulator. Right after a person is hurt, the devil begins to plant all kinds of lies in our soul, included but not limited to: 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 this lasting freedom through Christ is possible. It is our prayer that this program will impact the lives of many young women who find themselves in bondage and, without hope, find true freedom through Christ that will last a lifetime.
Having a safe "haven" for young women to come and find healing all under one roof with our residential program.

"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
