What We Do

Life Recovery Programs

From Despair to Wholeness

Our Life Recovery Programs offer men, women, and women with children the space, support and skills to rebuild their lives on a Christ-centered foundation.

This 9-12 month, residential program helps those facing desperate challenges – such as chemical dependency, chronic homelessness, domestic violence or destructive patterns – and gives them an opportunity to address the root issues and learn new, healthy ways of living.

Our Life Recovery Program curriculum includes:

Life Skills
Bible Study
Art & Music Therapy
Physical Fitness
Recovery & Relapse Prevention Training

The goal of our Recovery Programs is to provide whole person healing and restoration so that men and women are empowered to build healthy relationships and make godly choices in the future. (Note: The life change we see in our recovery programs is based on the “8 Stages of Life Transformation.”)

Child care assistance is available for women with children.
