Glory House

Glory House Mission Statement

Helping people claim their lives with Christian compassion, resources, and support.

Our Philosophy

Glory House provides programs that are responsive to the unique and collective needs of individuals, families, and the community. Programs focus on solving problems due to substance abuse, irresponsible thinking patterns, or criminal offenses to the community. Programs develop life skills, problem solving skills, and positive habits, helping individuals and families. Restoration of relationships occurs when offenders participate in programs such as restitution payments, community service, and victim reconciliation. Glory House works cooperatively with other community programs that provide opportunities for offenders to be accountable.

Prosocial behavior is encouraged through individual and group counseling, “care-frontation,” spiritual exploration, chemical dependency continuing care, employment, and community service. Individuals are encouraged to make responsible choices which foster healthy, independent community living.

Participants in Glory House programs represent an array of cultures, personalities, attitudes, and beliefs. It is believed that each individual is of unique value and worth and deserves to be treated with dignity. Considering each person’s background and needs, individual plans facilitate the development of spiritual and prosocial community values and behavior.

After participation in Glory House programs, individuals will be better prepared to lead a balanced and accountable lifestyle. This lifestyle will be demonstrated through constructive life skills, spiritual awareness, healthy relationships, a life of sobriety, use of support systems, financial independence, respect for authority, and freedom from crime.


Glory House has, since 1991, been providing both accountability and programming to adults and juveniles through the use of electronic monitoring (EM). Glory House uses two types of electronic monitoring accountability: Global Positioning System (GPS) and Radio Frequency (RF). We have found EM to be a viable sanction for restricting the mobility and freedoms of an offender while simultaneously holding him or her accountable for meeting educational, work, treatment, and other responsibilities. Additionally, the adults on this program pay the total cost of this program, not the taxpayer!  While on the program, an individual is held accountable by a “field surveillance officer” who, through both electronic monitoring and personal contact, will monitor their movements. Additionally, that same officer will assist in the coordination of that person’s other obligations such as work, school, treatment, and other responsibilities. We also conduct regular breath analysis and urinalysis for each person on EM.

Alcohol monitors are ankle bracelets that measure the body’s alcohol level through transdermal perspiration. The ankle bracelet takes a reading every 30 minutes. This information is transmitted at a predetermined time via a wireless RF signal to a modem. The modem which is connected to a conventional phone line transfers the data to SCRAMNET which generates a daily report to the surveillance officer who contacts the judges, court service personnel, and probation or parole officers.
