Feeding and sheltering men is only the first step, but it is the most crucial initial service we can offer. Meeting basic human needs allows more freedom to consider and pursue services that can bring about sustainable change and successful reentry into society.

Feeding and sheltering men is only the first step, but it is the most crucial initial service we can offer. Meeting basic human needs allows more freedom to consider and pursue services that can bring about sustainable change and successful reentry into society.

Understanding individual needs allows our staff to more efficiently connect individuals to the specific resources they need in order to escape homelessness and experience genuine, sustainable recovery for long-term change. When lives are changed, families will be restored, and our community will be transformed.

Emergency Services

Anyone needing help can receive: A hot shower, clean clothing, personal care items, nourishing meals, and safe shelter. Often our first point of contact, supplying these provisions can lead to whole life transformation. It starts with a warm meal and ends with new life!

Chapel

Chapel is offered to our guests where, for some, they may hear the gospel for the first time. While guests are not required to attend chapel before eating a nourishing meal, we do believe that a relationship with Jesus Christ is the source of true, whole life transformation.

Chapel services times: 8 a.m. and 7 p.m.

*During this time of COVID-19, chapel services times may have been different from usual. 

Meal Times

  • Breakfast: 6:30 a.m. – 7 a.m.
  • Lunch: 12 p.m. – 12:45 p.m.
  • Dinner: 5:30 p.m. – 6:15 p.m.

Supportive Services

Guests with unique and immediate needs receive comprehensive care, which includes food and shelter, clothing and showers, intensive case management, permanent supportive housing, government program assistance, and counseling.

More than 80% of the men we serve come to us suffering from physical disabilities or mental illnesses. Supportive Services make a way for these guests to connect with resources to overcome their obstacles.

Men whose greatest needs are stable employment and housing receive tools for long-term success. Examples include resume and cover letter preparation, interview coaching, connections to employers, and stable housing.

Telehealth

Partnering with local clinic JD Health and Wellness, we now offer virtual onsite mental and physical health services to all of our guests. The key three provisions made possible by this community partner are treatment plans, diagnoses, and primary physician care, all accomplished in-house.

Not only does this service remove the barriers of transportation and securing health insurance, but diseases and conditions caught early will reduce the number of avoidable hospital readmissions.

Other community partners that we collaborate with are North West Senior Disability Services, DHS, West Salem Clinic, Catholic Community Services, Veteran Affairs, Marion County Adult Behavioral Health and Salem Health.

Recovery Program

New Life Fellowship

New Life Fellowship program (NLF) is a long-term, residential program based upon extending God’s love and grace in a safe and healing environment for complete transformation. When our program participants graduate, we encourage our community to celebrate with them.

During the 15 to 18-month journey, each program participant goes through stabilization, transformation from false beliefs to truth, transition into new behaviors, and ultimately find employment, housing, and new beginnings.

“Having a way to get off drugs and alcohol, you remember how to live and how to think. I still have worries, but I can cope with them.”
David
“My worst day now is a better ride than my best day before. None of this is happening without a relationship with God. I hope the brothers who are currently at the Mission, especially the ones in the New Life Fellowship program, are beginning to find hope through finding God.”

Transitional Housing

Grear Street

Grear Street offers an affordable, Christian residence for men re-entering our community after recovery or incarceration.
  • Job readiness assistance
  • Continued spiritual support
  • Life-skills classes
  • Relapse prevention
  • Informal counseling

Restoration House

Restoration House provides re-entry services for men transitioning from incarceration. Housing up to 45 men at any given time, the maximum stay at Restoration House is two years, although most men find permanent housing in six months to a year. During that time, residents participate in a structured, Christian-based program that includes spiritual guidance, case management, ongoing accountability, and professional development coaching.

We believe that all men are capable of change if given the opportunity and an environment that promotes spiritual grounding, structure, responsibility, and accountability. These characteristics build effective and productive lives, reduce recidivism, and create community contributions which provide credibility and healing.

Each man has a story to tell, and this acknowledgment assists us in our redemptive work that brings honor and glory to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
