Program Acceptance Criteria


Esther's Place of Grace is a voluntary program that requires personal initiative with responsible choices and behavior.  A young woman entering the program must be drug-free, without serious behavioral problems, and willing to become a contributing member of the home while working toward goals that ensure a positive future for herself and her child.


To be accepted to live at Esther's Place of Grace, a woman must:

  • Be 18 years of age, single (unmarried, divorced, separated)

  • Be pregnant (or her infant less than three months old)

  • Not currently be fleeing domestic violence situation

  • Have no active addiction present and be six months sober

  • Have no any serious behavioral problems

  • Get a background check. No assault or disorderly conduct accepted.

Our Intake Process takes, on average, 7 - 10 days from the first intake meeting until move-in.  The process begins with a phone-call screening covering the criteria listed above.  Next, a meeting with the potential resident and our House Manager will take place.  Here we discuss the applicant's personal commitment to her own well-being by working in the program established at Esther's Place of Grace.  A potential resident must understand that the program's structure and policy are essential to her overall personal success (and that of her child), and the safety and well-being of the home.
