Each house is managed by a house manager. The house manager is there to ensure a safe environment and to provide mutual support for the men in our homes. They are available for moral, spiritual, and emotional support. We are a tight-knit family. We teach respect, honor, responsibility, accountability, forgiveness, and family in our homes.
