The Residential New Life Program
For the addicted we offer a free year-long New Life Addiction Recovery Program.
Men addicted to alcohol, drugs, pornography or gambling can join our recovery program and receive free Bible-based recovery services.
First and foremost, we seek to assist as many men as possible who seek us out to establish and/or strengthen their personal relationship with God. The New Life Program is perhaps the most intense way we do that.
We share the message of Jesus Christ, and encourage all men everywhere to take the free gift of salvation extended to all by the Lord Jesus. As a gospel-based ministry to the homeless, helpless, and downtrodden, we do what the Lord enables us to do through the generous contributions and donations of our friends and partners, to provide food, clothing, shelter and addiction recovery.
As a spiritual training program, daily study of God's Holy Word is an essential component of everyday life for every "enrollee." Each enrollee is required to attend two Bible Studies every weekday one in the morning and one in the afternoon.
We are currently using the new Bible-based Genesis Relapse Prevention model of recovery. This recovery program has gained national recognition for its ability to help even the most hardened addict stay sober. These services are free to any individual that meets federal poverty guidelines.
Everyone enrolled in the New Life Program is required to attend the nightly Chapel Service, held every evening of the year from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. This worship service is conducted by a different church, group, or individual each evening.
Church Attendance Program
Men are encouraged to attend a Bible-believing church on Sunday mornings. We recognize that there's nothing quite like regular fellowship with other believers, especially in an organized church setting. The spiritual charge received from attending church services each Sunday goes a long way in doing what we're here for: helping others in their walk with Christ. We encourage each man to find an appropriate church to join, so that when he leaves the Mission he will have a support group to help him through any future struggles he may encounter.
Personal Study Program
Men are strongly encouraged - and expected - to seek the Lord on their own time, including scripture study, prayer, meditation, and reading faith-promoting books. After all, a personal relationship with God the Father is not merely a nine-to-five thing, it's a 24/7/365 lifestyle.
Every person enrolled in the program attends a regularly scheduled weekly counseling session with one of the seven Genesis-trained counselors on staff.
All enrollees are given work assignments, whether working in the kitchen, as an inside janitor, Contact Office desk man or dorm worker. They work six days a week, with one regularly scheduled day off each week. Research has shown that having a meaningful job is key part of the recovery process.
Rarely do we have a room open when a new person joins the Program, so new enrollees are assigned bunks in the Dorm. As rooms become available, they are moved into semi-private rooms with roommates. In either case, the Program housing area has separate bathroom facilities and a Day Room, which features a spiritual library, for the use of all men in the Program.
Three Meals Daily
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served every day for those in the Program. Well-rounded, nutritious meals allow the men to concentrate on why they're here instead of where their next meal is coming from.
All New Life Program men have access to our laundry facilities.
After six month on our New Life Program, participants move to Phase II. Here Mission staffers help them find a good job, pay off any outstanding bills or fines and eventually find housing outside of the Mission. Our goal is to provide these men with a fresh start - spiritually, physically and financially.
Partnering with Other Providers
Many mens and women on our New Life Program have special needs that we can't meet here at the Mission. Many homeless persons suffer from mental illness so we work with places like Valley Mental Health and the 4th Street Clinic to make sure our clients have access to the medical care they need.
