Resident Volunteer Program

The Resident Volunteer Program (RV) is a transitional housing option designed to provide men (18+ years of age) room and board at no financial cost.  During the entire length of an RV's stay at the Mission, they are expected to contribute to Mission house duties. 

The Resident Volunteer Program provides:


Each man in the program is assigned a shared room. This dormitory-style system of sharing a room with another program member offers several benefits, a few of which are accountability and fellowship.


During each phase of the program, there are regular group gatherings in which the men get together to fellowship and support one another on their journey towards their dreams. They work, worship, and commune together to encourage healthy living and productivity.
