"A MODEL OF RESTORATION"
Summary Of Organization Mission
The Purpose of the Exodus Houses Program (EH)
Is to help individuals become productive members of society. The goal is to encourage each person to reflect upon their previous lifestyle with a mindset that will motivate them to make appropriate positive changes within themselves and to provide the tools and support structure needed to reinforce those changes. The EH provides solutions to these issues by concentrating on a three-pronged holistic cure; Spiritual, Economic, and Domestic Empowerment. Through concepts used to get a person in touch with his spiritual self, while incorporating entrepreneurial skills training in the ‘healing process’, one is able to leave the program with the ability to provide meaningful income for self and family and a solid spiritual foundation. This three-pronged approach dramatically reduces the chance for that individual to once again become a negative statistic. This concept is considered a holistic approach when it is incorporated with skills development. The individual receives reinforcement on the spiritual and physical level thereby dramatically increasing the opportunity to live a financially secure and substance free life.
