Programs:

Short-term Program

Each client is provided 21 days of temporary stay each month.   At this time, we offer showers, clothing, and snacks. At 7:00 p.m. every night, we have a mandatory chapel service followed by the evening meal at 8:00 p.m. Lights out is 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 them 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 in to order to save toward their goals.

Discipleship Program

Since 1989, our Discipleship Program has made the largest impact in turning around the lives of the men at the mission. The main goal is to aid men in their struggle to re-enter society after the setbacks of homelessness and substance abuse. The program’s basis is on learning Biblical principles to live life on God’s terms. This real change is a three- step process: accepting Jesus Christ as Savior, learning and adherence to the Word of God, concluded with sharing the Gospel with others. Jesus put it best in John 14:6 when He said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.” Currently we have room for twenty men on the Discipleship Program. Working with them in the daytime, they are instructed in Biblical principles, good work ethics, and job skills. They are also given counseling to help them learn to change how they respond to problems that previously brought them to the mission. Additionally, they experience working and interacting with people again by helping and serving the clients that stay for the evening. Upon completion of the program, we assist each man to create or modify an existing resume and provide resources to help in finding a job. We maintain contact with continued counseling and support, which aids in their re-entry of society.
