How Aftercare keeps the Mission’s

Life Recovery grads on a path toward wholeness

In the Thrift Store processing area, Jolynn works her way through a bin full of donated women’s clothing. Each item gets priced, hung on a hanger and then on a rack. When the rack is full, she wheels it through a set of swinging doors and out to the sales floor, where she places the clothes on display.

Jolynn recently graduated from our Life Recovery Program and now is in Advanced Vocational Training. AVT happens at the end of the Life Recovery Program and the beginning of Aftercare, where the Mission continues to keep tabs on graduates through both formal and informal means.

It’s all part of how the Mission helps our Life Recovery graduates adjust to life again.
