About

Our Founding

Founded by Diane Bennett and Barbara Ambrose in 2019, GCCWJC/Magdalene House is a faith based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization located in Hancock County Mississippi.

 

We seek to empower women and minister to their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs, enabling them to move from addiction, homelessness, and/or incarceration to a stable and independent life. Our vision is to equip our clients through life skills training, safe supportive housing, and ongoing support, and to minister healing and restoration through Christian counseling and teaching.

Our Mission

Our mission is to encourage women to pursue a relationship with Jesus Christ, to provide hope, and to move them toward self-sufficiency by providing education, mentoring, and strength-based skills.

 

Our Vision

Our vision is to equip our clients through life skills training, safe supportive housing, and ongoing support, and to minister healing and restoration through Christian counseling and teaching.

In Memory

In 2014, Julie Ann Rosson's dream was to build a home for women who were recovering from addiction. On Sept 2, suffering with severe pain, she was hospitalized and suddenly passed away at Hancock Medical in Bay St. Louis hospital at the age of 55.

 

We dedicate Magdalene House to the memory of Julie.
