Reconciliation House, the House of L.I.G.H.T. Where  
Love Is God's Healing Touch
Welcome to Reconciliation House Inc. (RHI). RHI is a long-term, faith based residential Women's Aftercare Reentry program for women who truly desire to change. Located on 53 acres in Middle Georgia, it is the perfect place to develop a therapeutic community. Our housing and training has empowered women to become career leaders in many fields. The impact of their experience has caused them to return as volunteers, in hopes of helping others to reach their level of freedom, success and empowerment.

RHI provides a full continuum of care for clients and leadership training opportunities for graduates. The focus is a faith based holistic approach to recovery from life controlling problems, and preparation for successful living. Clients receive a unique blend of discipleship, chapel services, class work, life skill training, work therapy, recreational therapy, vocational development, individual, group, and family counseling. GED and tutorial services are required for clients lacking high school diplomas.

Our philosophy for this ministry is taken from the Bible in 2 Corinthians 5:11-21. In this passage, rather than viewing our clientele according their old nature, we see them transforming to their new nature. We believe that at RHI, the newness concept is traced to the importance of choices, becoming new through renovation, nurturing and cultivating the brand new person with a new family, adopting new values, new motivations and decisions to grow spiritually and not revert to putting on the old but continuing to grow in the new. It is our belief that true recovery only occurs when you enter into a personal commitment to overcome personal obstacles and limitations and adopt a zeal for advancement.

We know that our family and donors are committed to providing the best opportunities available. We do our best to assist, however spiritual growth and recovery are the individual’s responsibility. We believe that if the program is embraced wholeheartedly and maximum effort is put forth it will open doors for great opportunity. God will bless you as He cultivates and nurturers you at RHI.
We use 2 Corinthians (5:11) because we know the solemn fear of the Lord drives us to persuade others. God knows we are sincere, and I hope you know this, too.
(5:12) Are we trying to pat ourselves on the back? No, we are giving you a reason to be proud of what God is doing.  Which is better? Bragging about having a spectacular ministry or having a sincere heart before God.
(5:13) If it seems that we are crazy, it is to bring glory to God. If we are in our right minds, it is for your benefit.
(5:14) Whatever we do, it is because Christ’s love controls us or urges us. Since we believe that Christ died for everyone, we also believe that we have died to the old life. One died on behalf of all.
(5:15) He died for everyone so that those who receive Him should no longer live to please themselves. Instead, we should live to please Christ who died and was raised for us.
(5:16) We have stopped evaluating others by what the world thinks about them. Once we mistakenly thought of Christ that way, as though He were merely a human being. How differently we think about him now!
(5:17) What this means is that those who are Christians are new! They are not the same anymore, for the old life is gone. A new life has begun! 
(5:18) All this newness of life is from God, who brought us back to Himself through Christ. God has given us the task of reconciling people to him.
(5:19) For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself, no longer counting peoples' sins against them. This is the wonderful message he has given us to tell others.
(5:20) We are Christ's ambassadors and God is using us to speak to you. We urge you, as though Christ himself were here pleading with you, "Be reconciled to God!"
(5:21) For God made Christ, who never sinned to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.
