• Residents may correspond with family members after the intake process has occurred, provided that the family dynamic is healthy and non-toxic.
  • Any other correspondence that does not involve immediate family has to be approved by the Director of CWRH, but not until after the initial 30-day evaluation period. If approved, this privilege can be revoked at any time at Ministry Team’s discretion, should it become apparent that the correspondence is interfering with the Resident’s progress and healing.
  • Postage is the Resident’s responsibility.
  • Incoming and Outgoing mail are subject to screening.
  • Mail may not always be distributed daily but rather at the convenience of the CWRH Ministry Team.
  • Due to the lack of storage space and restrictions on items that Residents can have requests for items should not be made in letters. If the Resident has a legitimate need, she can bring it to the Director of CWRH for consideration. Any item arriving in the mail pursuant to a request via correspondence will be returned to the sender.
  • All mail should be addressed to the Resident c/o Calvary Women’s Restoration House, 1130 NW US HWY 19, Crystal River, FL 34428.


  • All incoming packages must be pre-approved by the Director of CWRH. Any non-approved item included in a pre-approved package will not be given to the Resident but will be handled at the Director’s discretion.
  • Residents’ families are not allowed to send individual gift packages or special occasion gifts unless the Resident is in Phase 3 of CWRH. If a Resident’s family has the desire to send a package that would bless the entire house, please contact the director for ideas and approval. All unapproved packages will be returned to the sender.
  • Residents will spend considerable time in Bible Studies and have required reading from a list of pre-approved books. For this reason, the only books that can be received for Residents are ones from the approved list in the event that the sender wants Resident to have their own personal copy of that book.

phone calls

  • Residents will not be permitted to make phone calls in the first month of their stay, months are calculated by date of entry not number of days (Ex. Jan 4 to Feb 4, not the month of January). After 30 days, they will be permitted a 15-minute weekly phone call, to be monitored by CWRH Ministry Team.
  • After the 30-day evaluation, Residents will be allowed a 30-minute weekly call on an appointed day to approved family only. The Resident will determine how to divide the time among family members.
  • Phone calls may be monitored by CWRH Ministry Team, especially in early phases, and may be terminated if deemed necessary.
  • Calls with children will be determined on a case-by-case basis and the decision will be based on what is best for the child.
  • Phone calls are outgoing only and will come from a restricted number. If a Resident misses a call at the arranged time, she may try again later.
  • If the Resident’s family would like information regarding her status and the Resident is comfortable having us share it with them, they can leave a message for CWRH Ministry Director at 1(970) 823-4428. The Director will return the call when possible. Please be patient. Sometimes the CWRH world is a little busy!
