Description: Transitional shelter for homeless men, operated by the Frederick Rescue Mission.

An average of 70 men each year enter the doors of the Frederick Rescue Mission with the intention of getting their lives back on track after stints of homelessness, addiction, and/or jail time. What began as a ten-bed shelter in 1964, now can house up to 40 men participating in the Mission’s year-long Changed Life Recovery Program. Men who go through the program attempt to attain these 8 goals:
1—Be passionate about Jesus Christ
2—Be victorious over addiction
3—Be connected to a local church
4—Have a mentor and/or be part of an accountability group
5—Obtain education for the future
6—Find safe and affordable housing
7—Obtain a financially sustaining job
8—Be reconciled to his family as much as possible
All men are required to participate in work therapy while they’re in the program, which consists of helping to run the services the Mission provides to the community. Men will be assigned to areas such as the kitchen, recycling, the front desk, or facilities.
A typical day for the men starts with quiet time, Bible study, and recovery curriculum. They then use their afternoons for work therapy. Their evenings are filled with recovery programming such as chapel, Celebrate Recovery, Bible classes, and/or relaxation and fun such as game nights or field trips.
During his time in the program, a man has the opportunity to gain his GED, obtain his driver’s license, work on his resume, and settle any ongoing court issues. The men are subjected to random drug, alcohol, and nicotine tests, with zero tolerance for using while in the program.
It is the Mission’s hope to restore these men back to their families and communities as upstanding, influential men making a stand for lives of integrity
