The residence we have is a place:

  • where broken vessels are remade into vessels of honor.
  • of love, warmth, safety, comfort, and compassion.
  • with a great support system, similar to sorority sisters in college.
  • of separation, where you can be free from all the stress and worries of life while inner healing and change take place.
  • for the mind to be renewed, where terrible thoughts are replaced with the truth of who we are according to God’s Word.

“Arise and go down to the Potter’s House and there I will cause you to hear My words. The vessel the potter made of clay was marred in the hands of the potter; so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it.”

- Jeremiah 18: 2, 4

We are not a rehabilitation center but a home that offers a Christian discipleship program. Therefore, our focus is on helping women become Disciples of Christ. To us, it is not just about getting off drugs but becoming closer to God.

Two dentists, a doctor, a professional hairstylist, and professional counselors are here for all of the needs of the participants. They will give the women complete makeovers free of charge. We get many clothes, shoes, purses, and jewelry just from donations alone. This is important because these motivate our ladies to want to look nice, which, in return, makes them feel better about themselves.

It is our desire to minister to the whole person. We teach our ladies that they are Women of God. Therefore, they should look, act, dress, talk, and carry themselves as who they are: representatives of the Almighty God.

We Welcome Your Donations

Support our ministry through donations. We accept in kind and monetary donations. Please have checks made payable to Southwest Potter House and send them to PO Box 108, Ellaville, GA 31806.

How We Got Started

The Story of Melissa Adams, Our Founder

Years ago, the desire was birthed in the heart of our founder. She hoped to open a Christian home for troubled women. As she ministered in jails, she would see ladies get out and come right back in, just like a revolving door. She could see their desperate desires to live for the Lord, but with no one to help when they got out, they could not make it.

A mountain of difficult obstacles faced each woman on the outside, including probation fines, driving under the influence (DUI) schools, and fees for getting driver’s licenses reinstated. They had no jobs and vehicles to their name. These days, a car is vital, especially if people want to look for a job or get back and forth to work. Not to mention, these ladies did not even have a place to live in.

Therefore, in their hopelessness, the ladies would again succumb to the same lifestyle. Of course, this always broke Melissa’s heart. This only reinvigorated her desire to do something to help.

The Formation of Potter’s House

Melissa graduated from the Potter’s House in Milner, Georgia 5 years ago. God gave her a vision passion and burden to rescue other women from destructive lifestyles. She’s a pastor’s daughter raised in church and has been doing jail ministry. Having a heart for the broken, she helps women by rebuilding them spiritually, emotionally, mentally, and physically.
