Day Center Job Search, Resumes, Support: Those in our Jump Start Recovery program have access to our day center and various resources. At the day center we provide help in developing resumes, budget development and expense tracking, computer use and Internet access for job search and online application, phone and fax, a place to rest, as well as prepackaged lunch, and guidance counseling.
Located within our fellowship facilities, we also help those staying at the local homeless shelter. Those staying at the homeless shelter can arrange for rides to and from the shelter. Another resource the day center provides is boxes of food, and help with local assistance such as food stamps and networking with other community resources for those in need.
Life Skills and Introduction to Healing: Keys to successful recovery:
Jump Start Recovery Life Skills is our crisis recovery workbook developed by Pastor Charles Pretlow and the MCI Recovery Ministry's team. There are many Christian and secular models for support group and recovery work. Most use the 12-step approach popularized by Alcoholics Anonymous.
MCI Recovery's model is based on Biblical principles and Christ's teachings that press to the root issues, where the Holy Spirit is allowed to heal wounds and trauma within the believer's personal spirit. This Biblical model works towards complete recovery. Our workbook lessons cover Christ's teachings on why things went wrong and how to stop destructive cycles; lesson range from restoring hope, breaking generational destructive traits, to resume writing, job search, and building confidence. This workbook is used at the local shelter with much success.
