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.
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.
