Prodigal Daughters Journey Home
Sarasota, FL

Prodigal Daughters Journey Home is a Christ centered residential home, rehabilitation program, and discipleship ministry. We are a safe haven for women and their children to come who have suffered from the bondage of alcoholism, drug addiction, human trafficking, abuse, or any other life controlling issues. The purpose of this home is to rebuild the foundation of these women's lives through the power of the Holy Spirit. The focus of our treatment is to allow God to renew their minds and restore their lives so they will know His plan for them which is good, pleasing and perfect. The heart of this ministry is to create a family atmosphere where women and their children can receive healing, break free from bondage, mend broken relationships, and fulfill the calling God has on their lives.

"I remember first meeting Denise and Joe Gattuso a few years ago when they were still planning to open Prodigal Daughters. They were seeking advice from our Loving Hands Founder with open and humble hearts, knowing what God was calling them to. Since they opened their doors, I've seen the work of their hands and the fruit of their labor. It is a blessing to watch broken women come to Prodigal Daughters and be made whole and set on fire for God through the program. I have recommended many people to Prodigal Daughters and will continue to in the future. God bless you."

-Rev. Joe Hamblen (Executive Director of Loving Hands Ministries)

"Prodigal Daughters is strategically placed to meet an overwhelming need in our community. We have one of the highest addiction rates in Manatee county, which Prodigal Daughters is working hard to stop. Not only are they a place for the women who have become trapped to get help, but also their children. Prodigal Daughters allows a mom to not have to choose between getting help and her kids."
