Justin’s Place Overview

Justin’s Place is a Christian non profit organization in Fort Worth who work with single-mom families in the Stop 6 neighborhood. Our mission is to impact the life of a child by empowering single moms spiritually, physically and emotionally to walk out of lives of crisis and end generational poverty.

 

Justin’s Place consists of both weekly/monthly programming, as well as a stable living facility for single-mom families. Justin’s Place currently has 5 different programs targeted towards both mothers and kids in order to build lasting relationships that restore dignity and bring about life change. In addition to our programs, Justin’s Place will soon have a stable living facility called, The Nest, where single-mom families from Stop 6 can find the refuge, support, and stability they need to get back on their feet. The Nest is expected to be built in late 2019.
