Our Story

After the Rain of Southwest Florida, Inc.

is one of the few half-way houses in Fort Myers to assist women in recovery from addictions, homelessness and domestic violence. The Program is designed to provide women with an intimate, supportive, loving home-like environment while maintaining structure and discipline as they journey through recovery becoming self-sufficient and independent. 

As a result of their Christian virtues, this non-profit home stays open only by “the Grace of God.” The shelter is always seeking funding to keep the program running mainly because of its policy to “turn no woman away.”


After the Rain of Southwest Florida, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 2005. View our Guidestar Profile.

Our History

AFTER THE RAIN OF W FLORIDA, INC began with the vision of Beverly (Duncan) Johnson, who is a life long Lee County resident and member of Mount Olive African Methodist Episcopal Church. Beverly has been committed to providing shelter and a safe structured environment for women who have found themselves with no place to turn due to various issues including: substance abuse, domestic violence, incarceration and the absence of basic life skills.

Through her own recovery, which encompasses over twenty years of tireless service in our community, Beverly has partnered with numerous individuals and organizations who share her vision. The realization of this vision took substance with the incorporation of AFTER THE RAIN OF W FLORIDA, INC. on July 14, 2005.
