Scarlet Thread Home for Ladies
This Home, run by The Scarlet Thread Ministry of The Carpenter’s Ministry, is dedicated to providing spiritual and physical nourishment, restoration and direction to young ladies, one life at a time.
The Scarlet Thread Home currently has a maximum capacity of twenty ladies at any given time. Prospective candidates apply and are interviewed so as to ascertain the root cause of their temporary challenge. Through the help of the Holy Spirit candidates are admitted. Admitted candidates will be treated on a case–by–case basis without stereotyping. Candidates who may not qualify for Admission (for several possible reasons) may still receive counselling and mentoring from other arms of The Carpenter’s Ministry.
The Home has been tastefully furnished by the Ministry to serve as a real Home to the ladies who will spend one year or more of their lives there. It consists of a front foyer/Matron’s Office, a large living/dining/training area, a smaller counselling/meeting lounge, a large kitchen/catering area, a store, a library corner, three mini dormitories all en suite, a training area for sewing/computer training etc., a spare room/volunteer chaperon’s room, and an outdoor hair making/training corner.
The Home is equipped with a 40kva sound proof generator, computers, sewing machines, cooking and baking equipment, a 42″ LCD television set for training, a 26″ LCD television, air–conditioners, freezer, fridge, microwave ovens, 10 bunk beds with complete beddings and so much more. This vision would not be possible without a Support Team who has to rely primarily on the grace of God to fulfil their roles. There is a full-time Administrator/Matron who is a Staff Partner of The Carpenter’s Ministry. There is also an Assistant Matron/live–in Chaperon who resides in the Quarters behind the House, whose presence is mandatory at weekends and night times.
The Ministry also enjoys the support of female born-again volunteers who are members of The Carpenter’s Church.
