This is the place that faith is building.

Join the community-wide effort to raise the last $275,000 for completion!

Exciting News
Joseph’s Hammer has stepped
out in faith!

Construction is underway at the Chapel!
Be a part of the community-wide effort
to complete it!

We have enough funds to construct the building, buy the air conditioners, and get the drywall in. We still need your help to finish out the interior and the security fence. As costs continue to increase, we are trusting God to raise up generous hearts to finish His work.

In the Halbert Unit, women are searching for God at
the lowest point in their lives. Unfortunately,there is not enough space for all the women in faith-based classes and worship services.

Donate here to help finish in 2024!

501c(3) Building a place for transformation in prison.
  • Did you know there’s a women’s prison in the Highland Lakes Area? The Texas Department of Criminal Justice has approximately 1100 different women passing through the Substance Abuse Felony Punishment Facility (SAFPF) in Burnet for recovery programs every year. 
  • Three fourths of these women are serving their first prison sentence, and the others are coming out of longer sentences. They all get the 6-8 month drug/alcohol treatment they so desperately need before they go home to their communities and families across Texas. Many are victims of physical or sexual abuse. They are frightened, hungry for truth, and desperate to turn their lives around.
  • There’s no dedicated place for women to worship or attend faith-building classes at Ellen Halbert … yet.  We know (the evidence is irrefutable) that participation in faith-based studies and programs is the critical factor in determining the future success of these women. Now because of limited space, some women are being turned away and cannot participate in the very thing that can help them the most to be good parents, good neighbors and good citizens.
