The Transitional Living at The Mission is a Christ-center program that offers accountability, teaches much needed life skills, and gives the participant the tools they need to transition back into society to a productive and meaningful life. Transitional Living will be expected to provide programs and/or services necessary to assist men with building a stable and sustainable lifestyle upon completion.
The first 45 days starts with a seven day orientation designed to acclimate the participants to the facility. During this time participants begin the process of getting identification documents and devel-oping an individualized care plan to address life issues. Phase One participants will have access to Celebrate Recovery and other recovery programs like AA or NA. Participants will also begin resume writing and job search assistance as well as life skills training such as interviewing skills and training in computers, communication skills and general life application studies.
The second 45 days consists of more advanced life skills training. During this phase participants are expected to have already gained full-time employment in Phase One and must maintain employment through-out the remainder of the program. The family reunification program begins with classes in building healthy relationships, interpersonal commun-ication and support teams. They will also begin a search for suitable and sustainable housing along with a plan tailored to each participants needs. Budgeting and other life skills will continue and a GED program, if needed, must be started before a participant completes the program.
