Moving Forward in 2021

May 21, 2021

As of mid April, 2021 we have 140 residents in five residential programs. The heart of our program is found in Christian development spread throughout the Reentry and Aftercare (Christian Discipleship model), Treatment,
Supportive and Graduate Housing.  We are excited that God is giving us an opportunity to start working with women and their families. We are also implementing new Independent Life Skills Curriculums that include: Financial literacy, career, employment and computer training, entrepreneurship classes, Celebrate Recovery support groups, an expanded Mentoring program, and parenting classes for all program participants. Above and beyond our set programs we need to teach our residents how to have “sober fun” in a Christian community.  This summer we are planning fishing trips, outreaches, and sports games to do just that.  However, our current van is no longer drivable.  With 140 residents we need transportation.  Please, help us raise the necessary funding to purchase three, 12 passenger vans, $75,000, that we will use to transport residents to these events along with church services and serving opportunities for years to come.
