ReUnite Ministries is a non-profit, Christian-based residential counseling center dedicated to redeeming mothers and reuniting them with children they’ve lost to court-ordered kinship or foster care.
Through individualized counseling and mentoring, ReUnite helps mothers identify and permanently end the destructive behaviors that contributed to their children’s removal in the first place.
ReUnite is unique. We are among the few to focus exclusively on helping women become the mothers God intended them to be. By helping mothers overcome their issues, ReUnite is ultimately reclaiming families and alleviating an inundated foster care system. We are ending destructive behaviors that all too often pass from one generation to another.
ReUnite Ministries is a Christian-based residential counseling center created to redeem mothers, reunite children, reclaim families and restore communities for the glory of God.
In 2018, with support from Revolution Church in Maryville, Tennessee, ReUnite acquired a former nursing home facility near Louisville, Tennessee. Our sole purpose was to create a spiritual refuge, a place of learning and healing for mothers committed to regaining custody of their children.
While the region we serve offers many successful, well-respected rehabilitation centers, few facilities, if any, cater to mothers who have been clean for at least 30 days, but need comprehensive support and training to ensure the successful reunification of their families.
In Blount County, Tennessee — where we operate our 10-bedroom residential facility — the foster-care program is overwhelmed. Too few families are approved to care for the hundreds of children removed from their parents’ custody. An uncounted number live with family members.
By helping mothers overcome the addictions and cycles of dysfunction that prevented them from being good parents, ReUnite is ultimately reclaiming families and alleviating an inundated foster-care system. We are ending destructive behaviors that all too often pass from one generation to another.
Whom We Serve
ReUnite Ministries serves mothers and families in East Tennessee. To apply, mothers must be at least 30 days clean — if they lost custody due to drug and alcohol abuse.
Because it can take months to break self-destructive behaviors, we require that residents commit to a 9-12 month stay at the ReUnite home. Other requirements include:
- No violent criminal charge or conviction.
- Pass a drug and alcohol screen on the day of admission. (ReUnite administers subsequent screens throughout the program.)
- Not pregnant.
- Weekly church attendance and participation in Celebrate Recovery and other 12-step programs.
