If you or someone you love is struggling with addiction or homelessness, Helping Up Mission may be able to provide immediate help. Men and women are offered services and programs that meet immediate and long-term needs. Do you need:

Temporary help due to a short-term crisis

Overnight Guest Services provides a night of shelter for men experiencing homelessness.

  • Available beds: 30
  • Overnight guests receive a bed for the night, up to three meals, toiletries for showering, clean clothes, spiritual help, and case management.

Comprehensive, long-term recovery services

The Spiritual Recovery Program is a long-term residential program for men and women fighting addiction and homelessness.

  • If you need a medical detox, our staff will first refer you to a local hospital.
  • Participants will live in a 12-Step therapeutic community, experiencing grace, accountability, and personal growth that equips them for lasting success on their recovery journey.

Applicants for the Spiritual Recovery Program must be:

  • At least 21 years old.
  • U.S. citizens or legal aliens.
  • Suffering from alcohol or substance abuse.
  • Able to abide by a 45-day initial in-house restriction.
  • Willing and able to perform work therapy assignments.
  • Ready to become involved in all aspects of the program.
  • Agreeable to all program policies and procedures.
  • Available for a pre-entry personal interview on site (no telephone interviews).

Finally, applicants may have open court dates, but may not have outstanding warrants. And no outside employment is permitted for the first six months of the program.

Because Helping Up Mission is a non-profit organization sustained by private donations, there are no fees for initial entry in the program.

However, individuals with non-employment sources of income (e.g. SSI) may be required to pay the prevailing rate for program fees. All others will be registered under the Food Stamp/TDAP Program to help defray program costs. When a man returns to gainful employment — usually around the six-month mark — he will accept personal responsibility for a portion of the costs associated with the residential program.

At Helping Up Mission, we believe no one should be left without options. If you do not qualify for our programs, we will make every reasonable effort to provide you with a qualified referral to another service provider.

    A Note for Referring Agencies
    Helping Up Mission welcomes referrals from outside agencies and peer recovery specialists. We do not guarantee admittance until conducting a personal interview, and we may require medical agencies to send a DSM assessment. We also require legal agencies to send a full criminal history and psychosocial profile.
