At Almost Home Retreat, our top priority is to achieve results, and we know that our success depends on the quality of our campaigns and partnerships. Our approach is to build strategic networks and promote programs that will help advance our work to Help Humanity Heal Daily.
As we promote healthy opportunities for those affected by trauma, participants will learn new thought patterns to overcome toxic thinking. With access to the right resources, people can become empowered by their own abilities and gain the confidence to fulfill their potential.

Power Of Art
We have partnered with Lynne Barletta, using The Power of Art III curriculum. Using right-side of the brain drawing, this is a 9 week program that shows remarkable improvement with PTSD! The program has proven to be successful with the sex trafficked victim. Measurable data has been collected in a pilot program in Stuart, Florida with the local Department of Juvenile Justice. Our current work in Memphis indicate similar results as the participants range in age from 15 to 62.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Anonymous Working Professional
Almost Home Retreat saved my life! I've been taught the importance of forgiveness, accountability, all in a comfortable home environment. It felt good not to be judged for my past mistakes.
Local Business Owner
When I entered the establishment, my world was falling apart! After Pam set up proper boundaries, and partnerships for accountability, I was able to return home with a new perspective.
Local First Responder
I must admit taking the first step was very difficult for me! I had to learn how to trust people and Pam made this process seamless. She was authentic, sincere, and the way the program flowed was organic.
