There are a number of programs tailored individually to each woman which enable her to achieve success.  Programs include:  individual, group and family counseling, health care, educational and life skills training for adults and pre-school children, personal development, music and spiritual direction.  Residents participate in AA / NA  meetings held within the St Martin de Porres HOH facility as well as AA / NA meetings held nearby.
