Kari's Home for Women, Inc. was founded in October 2012 to help women overcome the stronghold of addictions. The idea for a Christian home for women in the High Country of North Carolina was the combined effort of staff members Eric and Stephanie Davis with Freedom Farm Ministries and John and Michelle Lundgren.


The overarching purpose of Kari's Home for Women is to minister to women in a Christian environment and to introduce them to Jesus Christ. All teaching is based on the holy Bible and the women are supported emotionally and in prayer by other Christian women.


Kari's Home for Women is a registered North Carolina non-profit corporation and recognized by the IRS as a 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt charity.  Our tax identification number is 46-0809300.
