Our values in action

We are a Christian community

We are a Christian-based recovery program. We believe true repentance brings profound life changes.

You alone can do it, but you can’t do it alone

The way out is to let others in.

Self-reliance: There is no free lunch

It’s pretty simple: if we don’t work, we don’t eat.

Impeccable Honesty

Honesty is the only path to reconnecting with ourselves and having real relationships.

Act as if you believe in the Golden Rule

Trust us, you’re going to hate it . . . until you love it. Over time we become that which we habitually do.

Embrace Humility

Be humble. Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.

Each one-teach one

When A teaches B, A gets better. You can’t keep it without giving it away.

200% Accountability

Secrets Kill - Truth heals. If we choose to allow our family to become “dirty,” we kill the very thing that will save us.


Speak out rather than act out or check out. Work on me first, you second.
Let go.


No threats of violence
No acts of violence
No substance abuse

Make and keep promises

We can’t simply change our address; we must change ourselves.

Pride in work

The best way to create a feeling of well-being is to do any job with joy and love.
