New Life Fellowship
new-life-programThe New Life Fellowship (NLF) Program is nine-month Christian recovery program which seeks to address the issues that cause homelessness and the barriers that hinder one from returning to a productive life.
The NLF Program is divided into four phases. Satisfactory progress has to be made in order to graduate into the next phase. A review committee of senior staff members meets every two months to determine if advancement is warranted and a weekly meeting is held to report on general progress.
The criteria used in evaluating each mans progress includes:
Completion of assigned materials
Satisfactory compliance in ones responsibilities
Possession of the legal documents required for employment (Birth Certificate; Social Security Card; and an Alabama ID/Drivers License)
Appropriate attitudes toward staff and others.
In the last phase a client is helped by key volunteers from the local business community to prepare a resume, apply and find placement in a suitable, sustainable-wage job.
The goal of BBM is for each client to return to their families, churches, and communities
Free from addiction
With stable employment and housing
With healthy relationships toward God and others
