Our mission is to restore hope and rebuild the lives of the addict, the ex-inmate and the destitute through Christ-centered recovery, re-entry and rescue programs. Our Recovery Program helps men and women overcome addictions, regain basic necessities, restore self-esteem and achieve permanent change in their lives. Our ReEntry Program partners with the Alabama Prison System, judges and parole officers to equip ex-inmates with the necessary tools to successfully transition to responsible, contributing members of society. Our Rescue Program provides for Birmingham's chronically homeless community through long-term transitional housing, case management, connecting individual needs with existing resources, financial literacy classes, assistance with missing and expired identification documents, and providing access to appropriate medical/dental care.
