Launching Legacy:
Change her Story

Our Goal

LEGACY will open a pilot program in Fall 2023 to serve six women struggling with addictive lifestyles. Funds provided will ensure that Legacy can hire an Executive Director, purchase curriculum, secure a rental space, and prepare a robust program to serve guests.

  • Are strollers allowed?
    Yes. The trail is unpaved and slightly uneven though so please keep that in mind when deciding what stroller to bring.
  • Are dogs allowed?
    Dogs are allowed and must be leashed at all times. Please bring your own bags and carry out any pet waste. Dogs are not allowed on the beach and must stay on the trails.
  • How can I register?
    You can register using the button located above or you can click here!
  • I can't attend the event. Can I still donate to Legacy?
    Yes! You can donate online here!
  • How much is parking?
    Vehicles with Connecticut registrations can park free of charge. Vehicles with out-of-state registrations must pay a $15 parking fee, payable online at
  • How will Legacy transition from a pilot program to a more permanent program?
  • What does a day at Legacy look like for guests?
    Guests will complete a Christ-centered curriculum for substance abuse recovery that utilizes a research-based approach and draws on best practices in our field. Women can expect a holistic approach to healing as they learn to cultivate meaningful leisure during their stay at Legacy. Guests will have limited access to technology as the majority of their time will be used to complete chores such as cooking, cleaning, and maintaining a garden, to engage in devotions and/or attend a chapel service, and to enjoy hobbies like playing guitar, knitting, writing, exercising, etc. Schooling is also an important component to Legacy’s services. Guests will not be plagued with boredom or loneliness, but rather will participate in relationship-building with other guests and with God, enjoy plenty of physical activity, and find rest and rejuvenation in Christ.
  • I'm affiliated with a local Bible-believing church. How can we partner with Legacy?
    We are deeply grateful for the local churches who will support Legacy through prayer, volunteerism, and financial giving. If you are interested in scheduling a time for church leadership to learn more about Legacy, please send the board of directors an email at
  • I'm interested in being a volunteer. What types of volunteers are needed?
    Legacy is excited to accept the help of volunteers! Click this link to send an email to our volunteer coordinator.
  • Who can I contact about my giving?
    You can contact our board treasurer, Rebecca DeYoung, at regarding any questions about your giving and she will be happy to assist you!
  • Why is a program like this necessary?
    We know that addiction is a massive and heartbreaking problem for thousands of Americans, destroying lives and ruining souls. The crisis is particularly acute for women, whose roles as mothers and caregivers in families often mean there are dependent children, which further complicates addiction and its impact. The need is great, and throughout Connecticut, unfortunately, these women face a revolving door with no sense of hope as existing models offer only temporary solutions and not comprehensive recovery in a Christ-centered home. The research/design phase of Legacy began in 2019 when a small group of future board and committee members met to pray and complete site visits to similar ministries designed to serve those dealing with addiction (visits included Hoving Home and His Mansion Ministries). Since then, the Lord has made it clear that there is a need for Christ-centered, relationship-based, and transition-focused recovery in southeastern Connecticut.
  • What are the different categories of giving?
    Budgetary projections show that to open a robust program and provide six women with a Bible-based curriculum, housing, and food, a minimum of $200,000 is needed. We ask donors to consider giving based on these categories: Supporters ($20 - $50) Pillars ($100 - $500) Cornerstones ($500 - $7500) Capstones ($7500 and up) Please get in touch with us for information about how donors will be honored.
