Gilgal is Celebrating 15 Years!
On May 9, 2020, Gilgal will celebrate 15 years of restoring homeless women with addictions. At the start of this journey, I never would have dreamed where God would take us as a ministry.
Our vision to assist women in breaking the cycle of defeat that lead them to drug and/or alcohol addiction and replace it with a cycle of victorious living through Christ Jesus has not changed.
We remain a Christ-centered, long-term, recovery residence for women experiencing homelessness due to drugs and/or alcohol addiction. Continue reading
HELLO! My Name is Chitquita C.
As a kid, Christmas was an exciting time of opening gifts and having fun with my foster brothers and sisters. You see I spent 10 years of my life in DFCS custody. I actually grew up in a group home just down the street from Gilgal. I loved my mother very much, but she and my father were unable to care for me and my siblings. She died when I was 17 and after that my world fell apart.
THANK YOU SISTUHS!

Amy W: A Determined Mother
Happy Mother’s Day! My name is Amy W. I am 31-years old and a 2011 Gilgal graduate. I relapsed along the way and recently returned to Gilgal. I want to get it right and the difference this time is that I am a mother. God has blessed me with a beautiful four-year old daughter. Being here without her is one of the toughest things I have had to endure.
Cora F: A Grateful Daughter
My name is Cora F. I am a 55-year-old mother of two. I had a great relationship with my mother growing up. We did many typical mother / daughter things (church, family outings, shopping, etc.) until I started drinking alcohol and using drugs as a young adult. I began hanging out with the wrong crowd and doing what I thought was fun. During that time, our relationship became nonexistent. I missed my mother, but I liked the new scene (and people) that drugs and alcohol introduced me to.
