Violence will not be heard in your land, nor devastation or destruction within your borders; But you will call your walls Salvation, and your gates Praise.
Is 60:18

History of  Salvation & Praise
Salvation & Praise Ministries began as a vision in August, 1987. The original vision was that of an orphanage type ministry for the benefit of misplaced parents or children. But in 1995 the vision was renewed by God with the instruction that it was time for the ministry to be birthed. With a task force of five core visionaries, Salvation & Praise Ministries was incorporated in March, 1998. In 1999, ministry homes were introduced to the plan. The plan calls for a network of ministry homes run by mature, caring, and committed Christian couples.

Mission
"To provide a nurturing family-like setting for abandoned, widowed, abused or homeless people of all ages. The resources of the : organization will be used to provide all those residing under Salvation & Praise Ministries, Inc. with safe and secure harborage during which time they will receive counseling, education (both biblical and academic), and the skills necessary for them to lead independent, Christ centered lives."

Vision
The vision is based upon the scripture from the Holy Bible taken from Proverbs 14:26, "In the fear of the Lord there is a strong confidence, and His children will have a place of refuge."

Establishing Families
Due to the rising number of families affected by violence, tragedy, drugs, alcohol, displaced fathers and mothers, and teen pregnancy, the result is orphaned, widowed, abandoned, abused, and homeless people of all ages. Our current social systems can't keep up with the demand or meet the needs of the "orphaned". Salvation & Praise Ministries is responding to this shortage by providing a place of refuge for the abandoned and abused, and ministering to their special needs with a special dedication to children affected with the AIDS/HIV virus. Our ministry homes provide a safe secure, and Godly place of refuge in a loving family environment. Our goal is to relieve the suffering of the abandoned and abused , and to assist them in establishing their own family or restoring them to their former families. All our ministry home parents receive training after a lengthy interview process. These parents will receive ongoing training and support from qualified specialists in the treatment of children affected by drugs, alcohol, physical & emotional abuse, developmental delays, and the parenting of high risk children, while rebuilding the lives of families with special needs. Our ministry parents are chosen based on experience and special qualifications. All are born again Christians under the covering of a local church, and are expected to live Christ centered, holy lives.

Adoptions
Some parents may decide to release their children for adoption as a loving option. Salvation & Praise Ministries will provide adoption counseling, support and adoption referrals.
