The Dove Center, our Women’s Division, is a residential program for female victims of domestic violence and their children.learn more
We help the men regain self-sufficiency, no longer controlled by addiction or their past. Jesus Christ is presented to each resident throughout the program. Since most of our residents have addictions, which in most instances led to homelessness, our programs are designed to help them focus on recovery.
Our program is designed as a three phase program and requires a nine month to one year commitment from anyone entering the program.
Phase I – Each man begins his stay with us in Phase I where he will stay for a minimum of 90 days. During this phase, each man prepares to leave the old behind as they focus on Christ. They attend daily Bible study classes, chapel services and participate in our work therapy programs.
Phase II – In Phase II each man commits to a six month period of intense Bible based rehabilitation and recovery classes in order to overcome his past and addictions. During this time, men are expected to grow in faith and commitment to Christ as well as work through the recovery steps as presented in the program. Phase II participants also attend daily chapel services, off campus recreational and church functions and participate in our work therapy programs.
Phase III – Phase III is an elective three month program during which the Mission provides housing and other essential needs for clients who have successfully completed our Phase II recovery program. This phase is intended to assist in the transition back to becoming productive citizens in the community again. During this phase, men are actively seeking employment and the Mission helps equip clients for the job search and assists them in securing employment and permanent housing.
“I was immediately blessed [at the Mission] by the focus on Jesus Christ …There was a greater sense of caring and honesty here than I had experienced in other rehab programs. I have been sober for over a year now and am using my sobriety to reach out and help others … My desire for them is to experience the love of God through the person and work of Jesus Christ so that they may be redeemed and restored as I have been. None of this would have been possible without the Mission being willing to give people like me who have run out of chances one more gracious chance to recover and stand in the power of Jesus Christ.”
