The Empower Life Center and Esther House (of Peoria Rescue Ministries) minister to women, men, teenagers, and children throughout the tri-county area.

The success of The Walk is in the number of walkers and the number of sponsors each walker secures. By helping us reach our goal of $100,000 for 2018's Walk, you will be making a very significant difference in the lives of many individuals!

Esther House

Our long-term residential recovery program offers hope for women who have experienced abuse, incarceration, addiction, homelessness, and/or emotional and spiritual wounds.  This is accomplished by addressing their painful and destructive issues and providing the skills needed for a positive life change.

The Esther House program is available for women and women with dependent children.

The program includes Bible study & classes that address personal issues, chapel services, mentoring, life skills development, and outside church participation.

Peoria Rescue Ministries is a not-for-profit organization supported by contributions from individuals, churches and businesses. No federal, state, city or United Way funds are solicited. Contributions are tax-deductible as allowed by law.

Others should get involved because ministries like PRM (Peoria Rescue Ministries) can’t do the work they do without believers banding together in support of them. Together, we can keep this ministry going strong and making a huge difference in the Peoria area!
