Jimmie Hale Mission meets our clients’ individual education needs through an educational curriculum provided in our on campus Stewart Learning Centers. 

This curriculum includes adult basic education, GED preparation, and workplace development, as well as training for accredited short-term certificates, industry-based certifications, and college enrollment. Through our learning centers located at each campus, clients at Jessie’s Place, Royal Pines and the Shepura Men’s Center are equipped with the skills they need to become self-sufficient citizens once again. Implementing these concepts and practices through Christ-centered discipline helps transform students into reliable and trust-worthy employees and students. 

Staffed through our collaborations with Jefferson State Community College and Wallace State Community College, our Learning Centers provide individualized assistance designed to meet our clients where they are and help begin their journey of reaching their potential.

Obtaining and maintaining employment is crucial to sustainable independence.  Jimmie Hale’s full-time career counselor works one-on one with clients to help assess their vocational and educational aptitudes in order to connect them with one of our over 100 employment partners to find the right job and/or guide them through college enrollment to further their vocational abilities.
