Guest Program

The purpose of the Mission’s Guest Program is to provide short-term shelter, food, clothing and orientation to the Mission’s Ministry Program.  This process an individual may stay up to 7 straight days.  During this time, they must show signs that they are working towards taking steps to move forward in their life circumstances by attending daily chapel, Discipleship class, participate in daily work assignments around the Mission, attend required classes during their 7 days stay.  During these 7 days staff will assess the person’s needs.  If that person’s needs can be met by the Mission, they will be offered the Rehabilitation Program.  If not, we will refer them to an alternative community program or organization that fits their needs.  Guest length of stay is generally limited to seven days per calendar month and a total of twenty-eight days per calendar year.  At any time, the Mission staff can extend the time of stay due to extenuating circumstances.
