Promise Residential Treatment Program currently include two houses for men as well as two houses for women and children. Life in each residence emphasizes a relational model of interdependency and is organized to heal and strengthen each individual in their spiritual, emotional and physical growth and well-being. At Place of Promise, we believe that we can live more abundantly by learning to know ourselves, each other and God more intimately.
One house is comprised of men, the other of women and children, all striving towards the goal of living to their fullest potential. Residents may experience a range of challenges including: substance abuse, mental illness, HIV-AIDS, chronic disease, and/or a history of homelessness. The criteria for admission is not the problem, but a determined desire to live to one’s fullest potential and a willingness to surrender to the staff and work hard in order to reach that goal.
Upon admission into the Promise Residential Treatment Program, each individual meets with staff to determine an individualized treatment plan in order to achieve his/her personal goals. All Residents receive advocacy and clinical support for a wide range of medical and therapeutic needs. Residents learn to live in Christian community as they are transformed by God’s power and love into new people living new lives. Each day is structured and includes groups, prayer, chores, learning activities, and fun! Sources of referral include: self, social service agencies, shelters, health care facilities, drug and alcohol treatment facilities and churches. Intake interviews are scheduled upon request. The primary criterion for admission into the program is a willingness to choose life and to follow through on the choice.
