Founded in 1987 by Sr. Marrietta Fritz (Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur), and Sr. Shirley Orland, Emmaus House is a home for women coming from jail, prison, or rehabilitation. Our purpose is to provide the women with a family-like Christian atmosphere while they are creating new lives for themselves. We do not judge or dwell on the past. We believe that all of our women are unique, precious creations from God. Our mission is to join them in their journey, walking along side them on the road to physical, emotional, and spiritual healing, just as Christ did on the road to Emmaus.

As of July 1, 2019 – we have served over 1,900 women!
