Resident Program Policy Guide  


Welcome to Sanctuary Mission and Grace House. We are excited to help you begin your Journey of Recovery with our life recovery program.

This is a faith-based program. Our residents have daily bible study, attend church every Sunday and Wednesday, and participate in the 12-step program. Our program also uses tools like counseling, mentorship, and work therapy to help you find your way back to a meaningful and fulfilling life. We pray that you will allow God to work in your life to find true and permanent change. 

Our Program 

The Journey of Recovery program is a 274-day program. There are three phases to our program. When you have completed the third phase, you will have completed our program! 

An important tool in your journey to recovery is financial accountability. Here at Sanctuary Mission and Grace House, we have an Upstanding Of  Financial Accountability memorandum (referred to as the UFA). The UFA is designed to establish a successful progression of financial accountability for positioning the resident toward completing and transitioning out of the program.   


Complete Intake Process: 

Application, Financial Accountability, emergency and key family contacts, background check, and verifications. Overall Needs Assessment: 

The case manager/ will do an assessment interview with guests to identify necessities, i.e., Driver's License, Social Security Card, Birth Certificate, Clothing, hygiene, first aid, mental health, etc.

Phase 1: 1-90 Days  


2 Week &  90 day Review — Progress Interview by Program Manager  

This staff interview is to determine the guest's progress in entering the long-term program. The guest will either enter the Program or exit. 


1-90-day probation Period 

This period is for the resident to acclimate themselves to a personal recovery mindset. You will not earn any income in this probationary period. 


After completing 90 days, you will be eligible for on-campus visits with a written request and work-for-hire income. (See Visitation Policy)
