Serve/Share A Meal
This is a great opportunity for individuals, families or small groups to interact with and encourage clients on the path to recovery. Warm greetings and smiling faces go a long way with our clients as they move through the food line. If you are willing, we would love for you and your family/group to prepare a tray for yourselves and share a meal with a client! Most of our residents would greatly appreciate your interest in their lives and typically love sharing their story.
Mentor A Client
The mentoring program is a relationship-building plan that partners current clients with volunteers from the community in hopes of generating conversation, understanding, encouragement, and support for everyone involved.
Most volunteers and students meet once a week during breakfast, lunch, or dinner, while some pairs choose to talk more frequently. Clients entering the mentoring program have completed approximately one-third of the Mission program and gatherings can be expected to last for approximately 10 weeks, depending on the facility. Male clients are paired with men and female clients are paired with women.
Mentors are not asked to “fix” the clients, rather simply be Christian influences through fellowship, listening, and laughter on a consistent basis. We have countless students waiting to be partnered with a mentor. Will you help?
Lead A Chapel Service
Are you looking for an opportunity to share the Gospel? We regularly need volunteers to come and share an encouraging message to help serve the spiritual needs of our clients.
This is a perfect opportunity for a small group to come share their faith. Typical chapel services included the leading of a few songs followed by an individual sharing a message from Scripture. Because our clients are typically non-believers or new converts, we ask that you keep your messages around the cross of Christ and not specific doctrines that may vary by denomination. In addition, we ask guests to avoid sharing difficult books and concepts such as Revelation.
Serving opportunities may be limited depending on the facility, as several groups have been regular volunteers for many years.
Our clients often need healthy activities to engage in on the weekends. Coming out to host a board game evening, corn hole tournament, basketball shootout, pickleball round robin, pool or ping pong competitions, or other fun activity can be great way for our men and women to interact in a healthy and happy way. If you are interested in conducting a weekend event, please contact us via the link below, and a member of our staff will contact you to coordinate the event.
Our clients graduate from our recovery programs after 16 weeks of intensive course work. A gift bag of useful items for each graduate communicates appreciation for their efforts and celebrates their accomplishments. Graduations take place every three weeks at each facility on a rotating schedule, so successful residents are completing our programs on almost a weekly basis!
In addition, many clients do not have family or friends to celebrate the holidays with, so a bag or Christmas stocking can go a long way in communicating the love of Christ.
For more information on upcoming graduations or resident needs during the holidays, please complete the form linked below and a member of our staff will contact you.
This is a perfect opportunity for a small group or Sunday School class. Most of our new classes begin with approximately three to 15 clients, depending on the facility. Sponsors will be introduced to the class in the early stages, and you will be able to track the clients’ progress over the ensuing weeks. Adopting a pen pal, scheduling periodic on campus gatherings, or other supportive activities help encourage clients through graduation and beyond.
