House of Joy (Facility for the Mentally Ill)
 
  House of Joy is for the struggling people with mental hurt. We love them with heart rather than words.

The house takes those who are unable to keep a normal life outside Kkottongnae. We provide them a family which is the most fundamental base of love. We send an important message that those who shared enough love in family are willingly give love for others. By caring one another with all our hearts and putting ourselves in others’ shoes every day, we put Jesus’ love into practice. All brothers and sisters here do not draw a line between ’my job’ and ’your job’, saying "My work is mine but your work is mine, too." Such attitude leads family to become one under God helping each other.

 Training for daily living skills for those with mental disability plus prayer for the people with schizophrenia
 Social engagement training : Grocery shopping, participation in various events, inter-personal skills training including visits of other facilities
 Classes for recovery : Planting, cooking, tending a vegetable garden
 Other classes : Music, fine arts, recreation, athletic activities, transcribing the Bible, etc.

House of Hope (Facility for Those with Physical and Mental Disability)
 
Purpose of House of Hope
  On the basis of the common belief of the Roman Catholic and social welfare industry in human dignity and equality, House of Hope cares the people suffering with mental retardation, physical disability, brain lesions and psychological disorders. We ensure that our family members realize that they are precious children of God. We also make efforts to build an environment where they can pursue happiness and then achieve it in the end. To reach the target, we run love- and faith-based healing programs which contribute to removing prejudice and closing the gap between the healthy and the disabled.
