  1. Oh they look so great!!! And those quilts are amazing!! Congrats to the winners, and thanks for sharing these pics of Hanna House with us Cat :)

  2. *squeal* look at those gorgeous quilts on the bed! I LOVE them and the fact they were donated - all is good - and that foot/boot print - I'm emailing you NOW

  3. Wonderful. Congrats to the winners. My favourite sequence in the house is the three above that one couch. Although all rooms are beautiful. So how do they find the women tenants? WHat is that process like. Would love to here more in the future!:)

    1. Hey Kmarie
      To answer your questions, the women come willingly into the program. It is run by Innervisions and is an intensive 60 day recovery program. Rules must be followed or the client is asked to leave immediately. For success there must be strict boundaries.This is where they get clean and get daily counsel to help figure out what brought them to this place. From this facility each woman can go into a transition home where she can remain for up to 2 years.
      here is a newspaper article about the founder:

      thanks for the interest K
      i appreciate it
      love and light
