Emily’s Place seeks to break the cycle of domestic violence for women and their children by providing “transformational” living with emphasis on emotional healing and life-skills training to ensure a successful, self-sustaining future. Emily’s Place is not a shelter, which typically allows women to stay for 30-90 days. Rather, it is a “transformational” housing ministry based on a 24-month stay commitment, which promotes stability and wise choices. The transformational program includes counseling, addictions recovery, vocational assistance, life skills development and spiritual nurturing---all within a structured environment of 24/7 live-in staff who are dedicated to offering the support and accountability needed to transition from a difficult past into a bright future. Emily’s Place currently operates two homes located in Plano and Allen.
