Our hope is to equip each woman we work with to have the relationships, skills, and mindset that will empower them to live purposeful, healthy lives.

Giving Women a Second Chance

Who We Are

Hannah House Ministries serves women by facilitating basic life skills, connection to community resources employment opportunities, financial support services, and access to relational guidance through certified counselors.  We offer a transitional sober living home for vulnerable women. Through partnerships with the YWCA, Dress for Success, HRDC, Adult Education Center, Riverstone Health, Passages, Women’s Prison, Child and Family Services, Probation and Parole, and LaVie we provide on-going guidance and long-standing relationships nurtured over time with the women we serve.

Faith-Based Transitional Living for Women

Who Is This For?

Women who apply to live at the Hannah House and/or seek our services come from a variety of living situations, but they share the same common reasons for desiring services:


They recognize their current inadequacy to create a stable home environment for themselves and their children


Most women, due to unforeseen pregnancies, job loss, spousal abuse, addiction, and homelessness, have lost hope and are searching for loving interventions without judgment


They do not have the resources of money, knowledge, skills, and connections to secure housing or good employment


They are hungry at their core for real love. Hannah House Ministries is managed by women who love Jesus Christ. Better still, they introduce women to the God who loves them perfectly.

For Women Seeking Change

Benefits & Expectations

The benefits of living at the Hannah House include a drug and alcohol free environment, accountability, peer support, and random drug testing. Our location is within walking range of numerous services in downtown Billings. Residents are required to develop a plan that includes mandatory drug testing, group therapy, court dates, along with fulfilling other program requirements. Our proximity allows for them to independently get to each of their services.

The Hannah House staff provides a safe home where women have the opportunity to work towards reunification with their children.

No limitations are placed on how long a resident can stay. Because we believe that relational investment takes time and is a catalyst by which positive change occurs we encourage women to stay with us for a minimum of 6-8 months.

“The Hannah House helped me become strong in my faith and in my recovery. They taught me how to be a friend, mother, and follower of Jesus. The Hannah House gave me and my children a brighter future.”

Jessica Smith

Hannah House Supervisor

The Hannah House is not just a place of refuge, it is a home. A place that I, personally, called home while learning to love myself again and reunify with my children. As a former resident and now House Supervisor, I endeavor to show the love of Jesus to the women and children who grace our doors. To teach them what it means to have a relationship with Jesus and to trust Him in ALL areas of their lives. The journey to where I am today was by no means easy. But, I believe that everything happens for a reason. As I step into the role of Supervisor, I believe God has called me to be a walking example of what will happen if you completely surrender your life to Him. I am excited and thankful for this opportunity to walk alongside and encourage the women and children of the Hannah House in their journeys to redemption.  

Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Jesus Christ.

Dona Kabeary

Hannah House Spiritual Mentor

I am a mother of four, grandmother of 8, great grandmother of 2. I have been a widow for the past 16 years.  I love encouraging and equipping women to follow Jesus. I retired at 65 to help lead mission teams to Ethiopia, setting up a sponsorship program for orphans there with sponsors in Montana. After that, I took a job with Montana Women’s Prison. It was while working with inmates that I became passionate about mentoring women who found themselves willing and ready to change. I love Hannah House because we not only walk beside women desiring to turn their lives and the lives of their children around, and we are unapologetically Christian in the process. I love putting tools in their hands, the most powerful of which is a relationship with Jesus Christ. I know with Him in their corner, they will grow in faith, hope, and love. It is my desire to pour myself out for the sake of the kingdom. I love being on mission with Jesus!
