Chelsea's Story CLICK HERE for video
Chelsea House is named after Chelsea Batts who entered Heaven on December 2, 2006 (shortly after this picture of her baptism was taken). "We need to open up a Christian for women like me who are experiencing hard times", she cried. We dedicated this project to her. Chelsea House has served hundreds of women experiencing homelessness since we opened our doors in 2007.
