Basic Guidelines for Admittance

The calls never stop
   Andrew Stull, the Department Head of Men's Ministry and Housing, relates the great interest generated, constant pleas for help and the distance they travel. " We get researched a lot.  i get calls at night from people all over asking what we do;Mostly from Ohio and other neighboring states, who are looking to relocate.
   The Mission sometimes is chosen by callers because of our reputation for accepting many of the people other shelters turn away. We have a well known reputation for caring as well. That's not to say the other shelters don't but we've found a form of nearly unconditional acceptance and love for those we serve.
There are few landmarks as distinctive and memorable as "The Big Blue Cross"It seems to be a beacon for those in distress.
    Our material resources are always limited but our resources of faith in God are unlimited. Residents are asked to respect, if not accept, their time living in a Faith Based Shelter. Religion is not forced on anyone but we do require complying with attendance of daily spiritual devotions, attending the congregation of their choice and their choice of a 12 Step or recovery group.
   We do require a clean and sober lifestyle so one can begin to sort out the prospects of a change of life. Steady employment is strongly suggested and supported but not actually a requirement. If one has a history of chronic unemployment, we work to find out why and help correct it. a 'labor in kind' contribution is required but not excessive and also usually chosen and enjoyed by the resident as being part of the community. More than anything, we provide opportunities

Women and Children Ministry and Housing

Dorm Hours: 8am to 4pm Daily.
Intakes are conducted by appointment or emergency.
Residents and applicants are required to pass a drug and alcohol screen on admittance and random testing during their stay with us.
   All residents must attend Daily Devotions oand/or Bible Studies, Life Skills Classes as offered and weekly attendance of a service of the faith/denomination of their choice. House duties and a required time of volunteer involvement are also mandatory but flexible to help the resident.
   All of this helps build the sense of community and interaction that we all need in this world. Residents are strongly encouraged to pursue the many resources we have been blessed to make available both in house and with partners in our community.
