Stability, then transformation. Implementing true change takes time. We’re dedicated to assisting those willing to commit to the task of achieving self-sufficiency. We work diligently with our clients to prepare them to re-enter the workforce, earn a living wage, and build the skills for a fulfilling life. Our end goal is for those who come to us homeless to eventually move into their own rental housing, and then purchase their own home. We do this by providing:

  • Life skills training
  • Vocational training
  • Financial coaching
  • Transportation to and from work
  • Purchase of automobile
  • Childcare
  • Transitional housing
  • Permanent housing

Our New Life Plan gives our Clients a 6-phase process that guides them through this transformation.

Our long-term strategy to impact the lives of those who have faced homelessness also includes a deep belief that the cycle of poverty and homelessness can be directly related to reading proficiency and school performance. Because of this belief, and because at any given time about 1/3 of the occupancy of our facilities are children, we have many programs in place specifically geared toward children. Read more about our Children’s Advocacy.

After immediate needs are met including spiritual, healthcare and hygiene, our clients begin work-based training to develop the skills and character needed to have successful employment, and overcome issues that are negatively affecting their lives. While staying at the Mission, clients work on-site performing some of the daily tasks that contribute to the overall organization. Clients can be trained in:

  • Housekeeping/Janitorial
  • Food Service/Culinary arts
  • Retail/Marketing
  • Maintenance
  • Administrative
  • Landscaping
  • Early Childhood Development/Childcare
  • Warehouse Management
  • Construction

Along with daily responsibilities, and with the job and life skills training we provide, we know when our clients are ready to seek a job outside the Mission. We then partner with our agencies and employers to help individuals obtain jobs. Additionally transportation to and from the workplace can be provided.
