Goals of the New Life Program

The four main goals of the program are to see long-term change in the following areas:

Overcoming Destructive Habits

Drug and alcohol abuse, poor financial decisions, unhealthy relationships and other destructive habits can cause anyone to think a “new life” is out of reach. Our goal is to see New Life Program participants like you transformed by overcoming destructive habits. By immersing yourself in the program, you will receive the help you need and experience victory over life-draining behaviors.

Maintaining Healthy Community

In the New Life Program, you will learn to build and maintain healthy community relationships. These relationships encourage accountability and foster continued productive participation in society

Maintaining Sustainable, Full-Time Employment or Equivalent Income

As you advance through the program and pursue financial goals you set alongside Mission staff, you will eventually obtain sustainable, full-time employment or equivalent income.

Providing For Sustainable Housing

Finally, the ultimate goal of the New Life Program is to see each participant graduate and provide for their own sustainable housing needs.
