Jersey Shore Rescue Mission – Life Change Program
The Mission’s Life Change Recovery Program includes Work Therapy, in which residents work at the Mission’s Thrift Store and do other jobs as needed around the Mission. Through this program component, participants strengthen their bodies through physical exercise, learn to live with structure, develop a good work ethic, gain valuable work experience and learn to apply Christian values in the workplace.
Meanwhile, residents receive group and individual counseling, and attend AA/NA meetings, chapel and Bible studies. During this time, participants face the underlying causes of their addictions while growing in the knowledge of the Lord and their ability to apply Biblical principles to their lives. Many graduates go on to the longer-term Life Change Program at the Market Street Mission.
