Since 1992, Welcome Home Ministries has provided a ministry of recovery, hope, healing and reconciliation for men who suffer from chronic alcohol and drug addictions. When we opened our first “Welcome Home House” in 1999, which served 9 men in a sober living community, little did we realize more than two decades later that our ministry would blossom into providing recovery support services in six recovery homes for 48 men, at any given time (four transitional housing recovery residences and two permanent supportive graduate recovery homes).
Welcome Home Ministries’ alcohol and drug recovery support ministry is an intensive faith-based ministry of compassionate care for men who suffer from chronic substance abuse. Many of our clients are co-occurring (chemical dependency with mental health conditions). Our ministry includes a 24/7 sober living transitional housing environment, structured living and responsible behavior directives. All residents are asked to make a commitment of at least six months to our recovery support ministry, and must progress through six levels within the structured living environment, prior to graduating to a level of consideration for accountable, but independent living within a supportive community of graduates (permanent supportive housing).
Detailed individual records are maintained by staff to ensure all requirements are met and sobriety is maintained before residents may progress to the next level within the program structure. Also, clients must remain current on their rent as a requirement for progression through each of the six levels.
Our recovery support ministry is based on Biblical teachings and utilizes the traditional “12 steps.” Additionally, good physical and mental health are important aspects of any sound recovery support program and are encouraged through assisted physician appointments and provided transportation for residents to primary care physicians and/or mental health professionals who screen residents suspected of having co-occurring conditions. Also, sponsors for clients, as well as spiritual mentors are vital to our recovery support ministry. Additionally, every resident is encouraged to increase and/or maintain good physical fitness and is provided with a free membership to the YMCA.
