History of Abba’s House

In 1998, the Lord gave Ellie Round, Executive Director of Abba’s House, a vision to heal this generation through love and prayer. Work began with homeless youth in the area in 1999 through an outpatient prayer center. The residential ministry began under the name of “House of Hope” in 2001, working with young adults between the ages of 13 and 17 and families to bring healing and restoration. The residential program worked with only females until 2004, when males were added to the facility.  In 2011, the ministry expanded again to incorporate young adults between the ages of 13 and 21, and the name became Abba’s House.

Abba’s House is located in northwest Michigan on a beautiful 40-acre farm estate, surrounded by woods and farmland. Nearby Lake Michigan and many other area lakes make this truly a resting place. The surroundings create a place of refuge, a safe place for broken lives to be healed and restored.

The ministry is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and is licensed as a boarding school by the Michigan Department of Education.
