Transient Men Housing
Each night at 8:00 our doors open to those men who find themselves with no place to be.  These men find a small snack and a hot shower as well as a warm bed awaiting them.  As we are a small shelter men are only allowed 3 nights of shelter a month,  However our director is willing to talk to any man about an extension and exceptions have been made.  After a good nights sleep, these men are offered a breakfast and then dismissed for the day.


New Life Discipleship Program

We strive to teach our men that they are, in fact, a new creature in Christ when they put their faith in Him. Their old life is gone. They may choose to serve the flesh but they do not have to live that way. We believe in the cognitive therapy approach. In other words, until an addict is thinking correctly, his actions will continue to cause him failure and heartache.
Our goal is to see men recover, and not return to their old lifestyle. Instead, we want to assist them in finding victory in Christ, and living a new life full of happiness and God's blessings.
We help them accomplish this by providing a structured program that will prepare them to re-enter society as responsible citizens. We strive to teach them the importance of completing tasks and being timely in all job duties. An example of the daily schedule is as follows:
DAILY SCHEDULE
6:00 AM Wakeup and breakfast
7:00 AM Morning Classes
8:00 AM Daily Work Assignments
12:00 PM Lunch
1:00 PM Resume Daily Work Assignment
3:00 PM Study Time
5:00 PM Supper/Clean Up
6:00 PM Evening Bible Study
7:00 PM Free Time (on site)
10:00 PM Lights Out
This schedule teaches them that there is a proper time for everything, so they can establish a routine that is necessary in daily life.
Whether it is the residential program, community food boxes for the Sr. Citizens, or assistance with household needs, the mission strives to help those in need.
