The Mission exists to pursue the passion of Jesus Christ to lift up the homeless, hungry, abused and addicted. The Life Recovery Program is called to be total recovery through spirit, soul and body. Men, women and children are taken into a safe, comfortable environment where they are access to one on one life coaching, small/large group classes, essential life skills education, on-site medical/dental services and vocational training in various fields including merchandising, janitorial services, maintenance, office support, heavy machinery operation, and culinary arts. After the initial assessment period with their assigned Life Coach, they are encouraged to make life-altering decisions to change their life by joining either the temporary Guest Program, Work Program, Housing Program or Discipleship Program. Each program works to provide our guests with the tools and resources they need to secure full-time employment, become grounded in Christ and succeed in independent living.
