Long Term Programs
These programs offer long term support and services that help guests overcome hardships and work toward a better life.
New Beginnings Covenant (NBC)
Individuals can apply to participate in this 6 to 8 week discipleship recovery program to help them reach their goal of moving out of homelessness. Participants attend foundational classes in health recovery, life skills, and Bible discipleship and are introduced to career and workforce development. Individualized case management and counseling are also provided. Successful completion of the NBC program is required for application for the New Life Program.
Transitional Living Program (TLP)
Long term program graduates are able to apply for transitional living in a Mission-owned apartment. The TLP assists graduates in budgeting their resources while they are working and/or pursuing education. Participants pay a nominal rental fee, which is held in reserve and returned to the participant at the end of the program in order to be used as a deposit to secure their own housing.
New Life Center
New Life Program for Women and Families (NLP)
Offered to families and single women, the long term NLP focuses on whole-person health and rehabilitation. Participants attend weekly Bible study and health recovery skills classes, receive individualized case management and counseling, and create a personalized healthy living plan. Education, career development and regular church attendance are also integral parts of the program. Women and families live in the New Life Center in order to have stability while they prepare for their future move into permanent housing.
After completing the NLP, graduates are enrolled in our Community New Life Program (see below) where they receive assistance with personal goals toward sustaining their independence. A case manager makes home visits to guide them in strengthening their connection with a local church and other vital resources, empowering them to complete their journeys to becoming stable and productive Christians in their communities.
The Learning Center offers educational advancement to participants of long term programs. Utilizing quality curriculum, partnerships and technology, the Learning Center staff assist in developing personalized educational goals to prepare for vocational opportunities, earn a High School Diploma or equivalency, achieve greater quantitative and literacy skills and other identified goals.
Community New Life Program (CNLP)
Case management and guidance is provided for neighbors in the community who have their own homes but struggle to remain independent. They have access to the Learning Center and may participate in life-skills and Bible classes at the Family Shelter.
