Second Act of Grace
In March 2018, Grace House Women’s Center opened in Indianapolis as a long-term Adult & Teen Challenge residential program for women. The Christ-centered US Missions program is intended to help women dealing with life-controlling issues by focusing on discipleship and recovery. Lavonne Y. Savage, Grace House’s executive director, has firsthand knowledge how such an environment can be life-changing.
“By the time I was 14, I knew how to proposition a man for sex,” says Savage. She became a sex worker at age 15, an alcoholic by 17, and a crack addict at 21.
