Holy Highway has been in operation for 29 years, founded by Pam Burton who answered a call to this mission. Today Linda Williams is Director and Chris Dickens is Assistant Director. Holy Highway is a non-denominational private Christina home, worship center, and school located on a working farm at Pickton, Texas. The home assists girls ages 12-17 to overcome substance abuse, physical and emotionally abusive situations. The home is state-licensed but accepts no money from the State. The home operates on personal and private donations, helping girls with tuition whose families have no available finances and girls who have no family support. Many of these girls choose to stay at Holy Highway for a time after graduation to finish school, prepare for college and transition into independent living. Many graduates of Holy Highway support the ministry by donations of food, money, clothing and personal items that girls may need. Holy Highway girls have come from all over the United States and several countries. There have been over 800 graduates and hundreds more whose lives have been changed through this ministry.
