In the future, the ministry hopes to provide counseling services, transitional and follow-up care and education for people in recovery, as well as support for family and friends, among other things.
How to help
The foundation is seeking monetary donations to help purchase a house or land for its Christ-centered home for recovery for the young men. It would provide housing for them for six month to a year.
Donations can be mailed to Peter’s Place Foundation at P.O. Box 71, O’Fallon, IL, 62269.
Volunteers are needed to help with Peter’s Place Foundation’s 5K walk and run in January.
