Client is provided 21 days of temporary stay each month. At the time of selection clients are offered showers, clothing, and snacks. At 7:00 p.m. every night, there is a mandatory chapel service followed by the evening meal at 8:00 p.m. Lights are out at 10:00 p.m., so the men can rest and prepare for the next day. Breakfast is served at 6:30 a.m., equipping each client to search for employment between 7:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Sack lunches are provided as available.
Working Dorm Program
If a client has or finds full-time/part-time employment (and can verify it with a letter from his employer), they are given an opportunity to join the working dorm program. This program provides a bed and locker in the dorms by paying a small weekly fee with a mandatory savings account as a part of it. This extended stay gives them an opportunity to save money, so they can leave the mission and rent housing of their own. They must have day work, attend chapel, and church services, and allow us to help them manage their money to save toward their goals.
