JEREMIAH 18:1-4 THE WORD WHICH CAME TO JEREMIAH FROM THE LORD, SAYING, ARISE, AND GO DOWN TO THE POTTER’S HOUSE, AND THERE I WILL GIVE YOU MY MESSAGE. SO I WENT DOWN TO THE POTTER’S HOUSE, AND I SAW HIM WORKING AT THE WHEEL. AND THE VESSEL THAT HE MADE OF CLAY WAS MARRED IN THE HAND OF THE POTTER, SO HE MADE IT AGAIN ANOTHER VESSEL…JEREMIAH 18:1-4 THE WORD WHICH CAME TO JEREMIAH FROM THE LORD, SAYING, ARISE, AND GO DOWN TO THE POTTER’S HOUSE, AND THERE I WILL GIVE YOU MY MESSAGE.

Our Mission for The Potter’s House Family And Children Treatment Center is quite simple. To provide Behavioral Health Services in a safe, nurturing and stable environment as we, by God’s grace working through us, provide healing and treatment for the mind, body, and spirit of hurting and broken children and their families.
We identify with the healing and reconciling ministry of Jesus Christ and are guided by Christian principles.
PSALM 27:10 WHEN MY FATHER AND MY MOTHER FORSAKE ME, THEN THE LORD WILL RECEIVE ME.
Some children and adults have emotional and behavioral health problems that prevent them from interacting with today’s society. Some of these problems include depression, sexual promiscuity, sexual abuse, alcohol and substance abuse, and more. These same individuals are sometimes able to maintain positive relationships with family members, peers and/or non-family adults and are sometimes able to attend regular school programs and engage in healthy work environments.
Such emotional problems can arrive fas a result of inadequate or destructive parenting. Others perhaps from lack of non-family support systems, such as lack of special education options or mental health services. Most children experience these problems during their developmental years in response to the environmental stress that they encounter through no fault of their own.
At The Potter’s House we believe that people who request help in time of need requires immediate attention and we are here to assist. We have a responsibility as an organization and community to invest our resources to care for those who seek assistance in their time of distress. We firmly believe that these individuals must have a solid foundation spiritually, mentally, and academically to be adequately equipped for success. Here are some examples of topics that are discussed:
- Self- esteem
- Goal setting
- Developing a resume
- How to interview
- Ways to budget money
- Public speaking
- Understanding the law
- Developing interpersonal skills
- Developing social skills
- Conflict resolution
- Overcoming peer pressure
- Effective communication
- Learning computer skills
In closing, I would agree that most people would like to leave a legacy. Our legacy is to leave one of abused, neglected and abandoned children who had no hope, becoming successful men and women, while continuing in the praise and gratitude of Jesus Christ and leading a life that reflects His grace upon their lives..
No wonder David wrote, “Psalm 139:14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul is at peace knowing this”.
