Alberta Green is the original founder and director of what was once called Green's Shelter for Women. The name changed in 2003 to Green's Home for Women and again in 2010 to Teague's Home for Women in honor of the family that donated the current home for all the residents. The name change provides a more accurate account of the mission.
Teague's Home for Women is a non-profit agency providing shelter to homeless women and young children in the form of a home-style environment with strict guidelines that teach/re-teach personal hygiene, manners, life skills, and tackle all the elements that are preventing them from becoming productive members of society.
The women that find themselves at Green's door must be ready to leave the drugs and alcohol behind and accept a new way of life that includes pride in oneself, training for job skills and employment, and be willing to bring God into their lives.
The rules and life-style maybe simple but the road is often long and hard. For this reason, accommodations at Teague's Home for Women is always a full capacity.
To provide emergency short term and long term shelter, help and refuge for women.
To help in social, personal and professional development.
To create an atmosphere where lives can be changed, bad habits destroyed, healing from past hurts, deliverance from compulsions, ill mannerisms and inappropriate social behavior.
- To promote dignity and integrity in the whole woman; spirit, mind and body.
- To promote self-sufficiency.
- To assist women in their reintroduction to the community as successful, productive, fruitful members of society.
- To rebuild self-esteem and as part of the therapeutic program, residents will be assigned volunteer duties in the community.
Teague's Home For Women is a non-profit organization fully funded through contributions from individuals, local churches, civic organizations and local businesses.
Teague's Home is fully operated by donations only. No paid positions exist within Teague's Home for Women, therefore, your donations are needed to maintain an open door for women and children forced out onto the street looking for temporary shelter while they get back on their feet.
