Frequently Asked Questions
our most frequent questions and answers
Is this a men's shelter ?
I am sorry to tell you that we are not a shelter facility. However, if we do have some space available, we would be happy to help provide shelter from the elements. Even though there aren’t any men’s facility-type shelters in Gwinnett, please feel free to get in touch with us and we will do our best to provide you with available information on other options around. Thanks for reaching out to us!
How long can I stay?
The maximum length of the transitional program is 12 months. Everything beyond that says you may be looking for something other than transition. While I do consider shorter periods, please let the staff or team know your intentions prior to arrival.
What are the housing requirements?
To join our housing program, you’ll need a GA ID, abstain from substance use for 30 days, have a feasible employment plan, attend daily accountability groups and weekly church attendance. Different types of housing are available and you can contact us for more information. We would have to conduct two in-person interviews before accepting you. We are excited to help and know more about you.
Is this a rehab program, or more like a halfway house?
Our Christ-centered resident transition program is different than those you mentioned. It’s designed to help you achieve growth and sustainability in a family-like setting. There aren’t many counselors, so you’ll need to be committed to making your transition happen. It’s a 2nd step program that provides support and resources from others going through similar experiences.
What kind of programs do you offer?
Learning about each other helps us invest in improving our outlooks and expectations, which fosters a sense of family. We offer job search support, money management, and effective decision-making help to aid in reintegration. However, accountability and transparency are most effective through sit-down meals and daily devotions.
What's the cost for the Transformational housing? ?
If you pass the 2-part interview, you will be considered for acceptance. Please be aware that there is a program fee of $200 per week that must be paid at Intake. This fee covers the first week of the 12-month residential program.
