Discipleship Program

We offer a long-term, faith-based rehabilitation program called Discipleship. This program is designed to help people end their personal struggles with homelessness, first by establishing and nurturing a relationship with Jesus Christ, then by learning the skills necessary to re-enter society and live an independent life. This process includes obtaining a job, attending life-skill and/or addiction recovery classes, saving 80% of income and, in the final phase, living in a transitional living facility. Prior to graduation from the program, each disciple must be involved with a local church, have a savings account, hold a job and be living independently.

The Discipleship Program is self-paced, and usually takes between eighteen months and two years to complete.

Social Enterprise and Work Training Programs

Learning the necessary skills to obtain and maintain a job is very important to Disciples making their way through the rehabilitation program. Throughout the Mission, many of the daily jobs are performed by Disciples. These include food preparation and serving, custodial work, operating the Mission’s telephone switchboard, maintenance throughout the Mission, assisting in the daily intake, and supervision of overnight clients. Disciples are also available to the public for outside contract services. Contracting these services helps financially support and encourage Disciples, as well as Mission staff.
