A Place for Mother and Child to Find Healing

A long-term residential home in Fredericksburg, Virginia where mother and child can find restoration and healing from life-controlling addictions through the power of Jesus Christ.

Cindy Zello, Director

The Mission

To provide a safe, stable, and loving home environment for women with life-controlling problems.  Beauty for Ashes offers help, hope and healing to both mother and child.  An effective and comprehensive Christian faith-based curriculum, life skills training, life applications, and Church and community involvement lead to mental, emotional, social, physical, and spiritual wholeness.   


Mothers who are struggling with addiction or other life-controlling problems too often do not seek or find help because it means separation from their children, leaving both mother and child caught in a cycle of dysfunction, hopelessness, and brokenness.  This population is in desperate need of residential care.
