“I earned my first paycheck in a long time. It feels good to be back in society, having a job and taking care of my debts. The next step is to get back into my family’s life.”


“My stay at Glory House has been nothing short of life changing. I’ve learned so many things since I’ve been placed here. “

Compassion of Christ

Painted by Richard Gorsuch


I would like to introduce myself: Many years ago, as a new Christian, I was being discipled by Roger Fredrikson. I was involved with him and a small group of believers at the visionary conception of the Glory House. I moved to the west coast in 1984 to care for my parents. My final project in SFSD was a painting I call the Compassion of Christ. It has been a blessing to many. My age is 87. I was involved with the Glory House for many years. It is a wonderful and remarkable ministry. I learned many lessons how God works with believers who demonstrate vision, love, grace, and faith. You are in my prayers.

Glory House has qualified for a generous grant from the Sioux Empire United Way for 2021. Our recovery services are recognized to align well with one of the United Way's priority areas, Vulnerable Adults.

The United Way grant has allowed us to increase the staff time devoted to Case Management. Glory House case managers assist clients with numerous practical needs such as obtaining and maintaining employment, making and keeping medical and legal appointments, and getting other life necessities from a driver's license to a winter coat.

Kelly Cleveringa, our program coordinator states that "The United Way grant will help our case managers go the extra mile in serving our clients with professionalism and effectiveness."


I feel like I'm worth something now. They made me feel like I'm worth something.
