“The person who trusts me will not only do what I’m doing but even greater things…” (Jesus Christ)
“… whatever is possible to God, is possible to man as God’s reflection.” (Mary Baker Eddy)

ALL our services and expectations are based on three Bible principles:
1) God didn’t make ANY mistakes.
2) Our world and lives are NOT broken.
3) There are NO exceptions to this Divine Law.
Stronghold’s Christian Science perspective is based on a primary Bible teaching: “With God, ALL things are possible.” (Matthew 19:26)

PHYSICAL and MENTAL HEALTH CHALLENGES
Americans have never spent more on material health care, and never had more chronically poor health, both mental and physical. We offer a radically different, responsible, and proven Bible-based approach to healing, harmony, and wholeness in your life.
Christian Science practitioners are available by appointment for prayer-based treatment of any health or life issue.
Homelessness is not a stand-alone condition. It is the side effect of dealing unsuccessfully with the life issues mentioned above.
We work with homeless clients to find out which of those issues need addressing. We support their commitment to making necessary life-changes, and the vagrant lifestyle gives way to physical health, mental stability, employment, housing, respect for the law, and freedom from drugs and alcohol.
“I’m the man I am today because of the Stronghold system. The morals they taught me, I still hold onto today in my automotive management career. I thank them for what they did for my family.” (C.G.)
“My mom’s passing-on when I was young seemed like the end of the world. The Stronghold system taught me how to strive, and I’ve held onto those values and lessons. Today I’m a happily married wife and mother, and have a successful dental practice.” (E.P.)
“Before Stronghold came into my life, I was angry, defiant, and lacked motivation. Their principles challenged me, stressed the importance of integrity, and are my moral compass to this day. I’m happily married with 4 children, and have been a teacher and coach for over 20 years. (A.H.)
“When I came to Stronghold, I‘d been using meth for seven years, hadn’t worked a real job in three years, was homeless, and was lying to myself and others. Within two weeks I was clean-and-sober, had a good job, a good place to live, and was getting my life back together.” (B.M.)
“Our son attended Stronghold. They help those who struggle to complete their education, fit in, find employment, become better citizens, and most importantly, find their true selves.” (E.P.)
“I enrolled at Stronghold shortly after returning home from my second prison term. Almost immediately I had a job, was maintaining a stable living situation, and was pursuing training in a career of great interest to me. Stronghold helped me focus my efforts, strengthen my values, and start becoming the man I’ve always been in my heart.” (K.G.)
“Stronghold helped me realize that I can be a success. I’d never had a good mentor/father figure in my life, and what Stronghold taught me will help me be a better dad to my own kids. I’ve also gotten much better at listening to God and following Him.” (I.T.)
