"At The Feet Of Gamaliel" (Acts 22:3)

Alberta Green

Alberta Green is the founder and director of Green's Shelter For Women (2000).  The name changed in 2003 to Green's Home For Women and then again in 2010 to Teague's Home for Women in honor of the family that donated the current home for all the residents.  The name changed provides a more accurate account of the mission.

She was born in Robeson County on August 30, 1922.  She grew up in Cumberland County along with her 2 brothers and 2 sisters.

Her marriage to an Army Paratrooper allowed her to see much of the world, including Japan and Germany, where her son, Richard, was born in 1957.

Alberta Green accepted Christ at the age of 13.  Most of Alberta Green's life has been spent trying to help people.  She founded and worked at Samaritan Good Will Center for 27 years.  Originally a halfway house for women getting released from prison, Samaritan Good Will Center was changed in 1987 to Maranatha Ministries.

Alberta Green became familiar with Southview Baptist Church through Bible Study held at the Samaritan Center.  She joined the church about 7-years ago and due to her faithful membership and deep love for humanity, Southview Baptist Church has wholeheartedly supported her vision with financial assistance and donations. 

Alberta Green retired and left for California to live with her son in May 1999.  After a visit back here in August 2000, she saw that there was still a great need for a place where women could go for help, both physically and spiritually.  She opened Green's Home For Women in October of 2000 and with the support, love, and prayers of her fellow church members and the community, she now has 13 women and one child in residence and is hoping to be able to have more beds available in the near future with the intended renovation of the upstairs room.

Alberta Green firmly believes that all the blessings she has been given and is able to pass on to others are a result of God's goodness.  She gives Him all the praise and glory, for she knows that without Him, none of this would be possible.

Teague's Home For Women is a non-profit organization assisted with contributions from local churches, civic organizations and local businesses.
