In February of 2002, the Lord gave Suzanne Marcellus, CEO/Founder, a vision. In it, she saw a safe space where children in need could receive counseling, become better educated, and explore extracurricular activities/programs. A space that would serve as a nurturing home and training ground to develop youth who live righteous, joyful and peaceful lives with God at their center. Youth equipped with the tools and experience to become positive influencers in their communities. 

House of Protection, 20 Years of Service

Since its establishment in May 2004, their staff and volunteers have worked diligently to bring this vision to fruition. House of Protection has impacted over 15,000 lives through Biblical Counseling and Life Empowerment Resources, which include: Overcoming Life’s Obstacles Courses, Parent/Youth Empowerment Trainings, Portuguese Connection, Addiction Workshops, Teens Reaching Teens, Let’s Talk Tuesdays, and Retreats.
