The domestic abuse program, called Safe HUGS, has a Christ centered focus that helps the victims to see themselves as Christ sees them; full, whole, loved, valued and contributory. Services are diverse and range from shelters to counseling. Weekly survivors meetings leverage many of the same process used in the Celebrate Recovery Program. Our goal is to support the path of all survivors as they work to be self-sufficient and free from violence.
The SAFE Passage program serves homeless (on the street, in a homeless shelter, or fleeing domestic violence) that are young adults (ages 18 through 24) who are currently experiencing homelessness. Qualifying young adults will receive rental assistance and supportive services. Persons must register at a homeless shelter for proof of homelessness.
Program participants are offered case management services and assistance to build job skills, and to obtain a GED, diploma or other education and training. Through case management, participants will be introduced to other supportive community services and will be assisted in developing individualized goals that addresses their own needs. Case managers will work with participants to monitor progress and develop additional plans and goals. Once participants obtain employment they can rent an apartment and rent will be based off of income. Participants have the option of staying in the apartment if they desire for up to 3 years.
