About this organization






Mission: Engaging and transforming lives together through the power of Christ's love. Vision: Guiding those in need from desperation to transformation.


Funds raised are used to support the following for the homeless:1) Community Homeless Program - provides food, chapel services, clothing and shelter to the homeless in 30 day increments.2) Long-Term Recovery Program - lasts 10-12 months and is designed to help men escape the bonds of drug and alcohol addiction and equip them to live resposibly. They experience real life transformation from within through counseling, educational assistance, biblical teaching, guidance in financial management, choosing a career and finding employment. The Mission's Education and Employment Center provides the men education assessment, GED preparation and other skills needed to enter the work force such as basic computer skills, word processing, resume writing, navigating the internet and honing their interview skills. An aftercare program is offered to willing particpants who have completed the Long-Term Recovery Program. A staff person connects with the men on a regular basis for encouragement and to continue the education process as they enter life's daily challenges.3) Hand Up Program - is for men who do not have a drug or alcohol problem, who want to work but are trapped in that vicious cycle of not having a job and can't pay for housing. Those accepted in this program are assigned a coach to help with resume writing, looking for a job and how to dress for an interview. They are assigned a locker to store belongings while out interviewing. This is a 60 day - 6 month program focused on removing the barriers to getting and maintaining permanent employment. They receive a "HAND UP" not a hand out.
