Structured Homes

We provide a structured living environment where individuals are given the opportunity to make a positive change with their lives. All our homes have house rules and curfew times to ensure a structured living environment.

Mutual Support

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.
