Do You Need a Place to Stay?


Overnight Guest Program

Our Overnight Guest Program offers short-term housing for men, women and families in  need. New check-ins are encouraged to arrive between 3:00pm and 5:00pm. We have  separate dorm facilities for men and women as well as hotel-style units for families.

All of your personal belongings will need to fit into the two 18 gallon totes  provided, so please bring only your clothing and basic toiletry items.

In this program, your primary focus will be finding and keeping full-time employment.  You will have 3 weeks to accomplish this goal and will be expected to submit at least five  new job applications daily.

Extensions beyond the initial 3 weeks will only be considered for those who have found  full-time employment.

Samaritan Program

The Samaritan Program is a great option for those who are unable to maintain full-time  employment due to a number of possible reasons including:

  • A verifiable physical disability or condition
  • Beyond retirement age
  • Mental health issues
  • Legal problems
  • Documentation issues
  • Short-Term stay

On this half-day program, you will be expected to set goals and on a weekly basis,  demonstrate reasonable progress toward independent living. While on this program,  you will be required to begin working with a case-worker or community support person  from another local agency.

Participants in the Samaritan Program are required to attend the 8:00am Devotions as  well as an 8:30am Samaritan training class. At 9:30am, you will be assigned an on- campus chore before you head out to accomplish the goals you have set for the day.

Your time is limited, so you will need to act quickly in regard to securing housing and  further long term assistance.

New Life Program

This is a one year, in-house program for those seeking a new life in Christ, free from the  bondage of sin and addiction. This academic and life-changing program requires a full- time commitment to transformation.

During your year on the program, you will spend about 10 hours a week in the  classroom studying many books of the Bible, various topics from theology, and a  number of important life skills. Each of these classes may also require textbook reading,  workbook assignments and memory work. To be successful, you must be prepared to  work hard.

In addition to studying, participants in the New Life Program serve roughly 30 hours  each week in various areas of ministry on the Rescue Mission's campus.

Applications for this program are only accepted in person and must be submitted to  either the Director of Men's or Women's Ministry. Upon acceptance into the program,  you will begin the 2 week probationary Jump Start Phase. Successful completion of the  Jump Start Phase is your ticket to begin the full, one-year opportunity for a new life.
