The Cleveland County Rescue Mission incorporates a holistic approach to recovery, addressing the needs of the mind, body, and soul. By doing so we help our residents confront and overcome the problems that led to their homelessness and overcome any barriers preventing them from independent, gainful living.
In addition to providing basic services such as housing and food, our Fresh Start program also integrates practical life skills such as vocational training and educational classes. Work therapy and individual therapy assist in the recovery of each client, and Bible study classes add to the men’s total transformation.
Upon graduation, our goal is that all residents live both independently as part of society, but also dependent on their relationships with Jesus Christ.
In the residential transition period that follows graduation from the Buffalo Street site, we remain available to assist our graduates in obtaining housing and employment, giving them their greatest chances for success in returning as a contributing member of their communities.
