Join us in celebrating how Jesus Christ has changed lives through the various ministries of Sheridan House. Whether it’s a child who’s life has been restored through our residential program, a single mom and her children who have been offered hope through our single parent ministry, or an individual or family who have broken through and free from an emotional/behavioral struggle through our counseling center; we give all the glory, honor, and praise to Jesus Christ for changed lives. He is the Way, Truth, and Light.
With his shaggy hair covering his eyes, TJ arrived to Sheridan House last fall wearing an offensive rock t-shirt and a cynical “whatever” demeanor. These external indicators proved to be sadly accurate in discovering some of TJ’s character traits as well; however, what we were unable to see was the determined and stubborn resolve that resided in him.
The boys and girls of our residential program experienced an incredible summer trip thanks to the generosity of our donors! Because of your support to sponsor the summer enrichment program, their summer wrapped with two unforgettable trips.
The theme for the boys this summer was Man Up and their camping trip put everything they learned all summer into practice.

She initiated fights at school. When she started sneaking away from home at night, her mother decided that enough was enough.
When Andy entered the Sheridan House Residential Program, he was struggling in just about every area in his life. He didn’t get along with or respect his parents, he refused to follow the rules at school, and he wasn’t even attempting to “work” our program. In fact, he had such a difficult time with the structure of our program we didn’t think he would last long.
With excitement and joy, the Sheridan House residential program girls decorated the teacher’s lounge at Walter C. Young Middle School to show their tremendous appreciation for a great school year. The theme for the event was a Mexican Fiesta and the food was generously provided by Lime Fresh Mexican Grill of Pembroke Gardens.
When Elijah came to the Sheridan House just a few months ago one of the first things everyone noticed (aside from the fact that he was a foot taller than all other 6th graders) was how sad he always seemed to be. He always had is head down and walked slowly. He quickly picked up the nick-name “Eeyore.” His mom reported that just before entering the program, Elijah had bashed his head against a wall and said “I want to die.” She also reported that every weekend, just before returning to Sheridan House, he would cry and beg her not bring him
