Program for men:
The men's life-recovery program uses a Christ-centered approach to helping men 18 and over resolve personal problems and chemical addictions. During his time in the program, a man will receive Christian counseling, participate in work therapy, learn how to heal from past wounds and develop new and healthy ways of coping. He will also get the chance to study the Bible and participate in the education program to improve his academic and employment skills or obtain his GED. A life-recovery graduate contributes to the community by finding gainful employment and moving into stable housing. More importantly, a man is made spiritually whole, with many years ahead to build and grow God's kingdom. After graduating, men also have the opportunity to move into the Mission's transitional housing until they are able to get back on their feet and find permanent housing. More information and requirements are below.
Program for women
Women who are homeless, abused or chemically dependent can find refuge, safety and healing at the Nashville Rescue Mission. During her stay, a woman will receive Christian counseling, including one-on-one as well as group sessions, learn how to heal from past wounds and open up to new, healthy relationships. She will also have an opportunity to study the Bible and participate in the education program in order to improve her academic and employment skills or obtain her GED. Mothers are also taught good parenting techniques. Bright colors, open spaces and play areas help kids regain their childhood. Each woman and her children enjoy time together where they can establish a feeling of safety and a sense home. After graduating, women have the opportunity to move into the Mission's transitional housing until they are able to get back on their feet and find permanent housing.
