Men's Residence: The program serves up to 36 men who need help with drug and alcohol addiction, emotional issues and other life skills. The program is five months long and combines intensive Bible study and life skills classes with one-on-one counseling and mentorship from dozens of volunteers.

The Men's Residence has two barracks-style rooms with 12 beds each and three bedrooms that sleep two to four men each, for a total of 34 beds. The facility also features a commercial kitchen and a large common room that serves both as a dining room and a classroom, private rooms for counseling as well as staff offices. Outdoors there is a recreation area with basketball, free weights and a running circuit.

The Samaritan Inn
The Samaritan Inn is a transitional housing facility for homeless children and their parents or caregivers. The program is designed to help families become self-sufficient in a safe environment while teaching them life skills, supporting them as they pursue their personal goals and providing them with spiritual guidance during their journey. The Samaritan Inn is the only shelter in Lake County that accepts families with both men and women and is one of only three such shelters in Central Florida.

Qualified applicants are accepted into the shelter’s Temporary Housing Program which allows them to reside at the facility for up to 30 days. During that time they begin formulating an initial case plan. They are provided with various support services including parenting classes, children’s programming, employment services, dinner each night and access to food for breakfasts and lunches.

After 30 days, a resident can choose to exit our program within a month, or apply to become part of the Transitional Housing Program. This program extends their length of stay to 12 months, during which time the family contributes only $175 or $250 per month (depending on the family) for program fees. Each family works with our staff to expand their case plan with more requirements to help them move forward toward sustainable independence at completion of the program. The expanded case plan includes creating a savings and debt reduction plan, regular church attendance, parenting classes and financial, marriage and vocational counseling. Our desire is to see each family leave with stable housing, consistent income and a closer relationship with Christ.

The Women's Residence
The Women's Care Center is a housing facility for women who are struggling with drug and alcohol addiction or other life issues. The program is designed to provide a safe place for women to recover through counseling, Bible study, life skills instruction and one-on-one mentoring to prepare them for wholesome, productive lives.
