Charlotte Rescue Mission (Samaria)

25 Days to REACH 2015! Today we’re featuring Charlotte Rescue Mission (Samaria – under served communities and people).

Founded in 1938, the Charlotte Rescue Mission has a long history of reaching out to the homeless and thosecharlotte-rescue-mission.png battling addictions. Over the years, the Mission has been located in several different uptown Charlotte buildings and has been called several different names, but our commitment to serving the homeless and sharing the gospel of Christ has never changed. Charlotte Rescue Mission offers the following programs to its residents:

Rebound: provides Christian residential drug and recovery services for homeless men. The program is modeled after the 12-step Alcoholics Anonymous curriculum, but Charlotte Rescue Mission emphasizes Jesus Christ, without whom life-changing transformation cannot occur. 

Rebound 90-day Extension: focuses on securing stable employment.  

Rebound Halfway House: serves men who have graduated from Rebound and found employment but still need affordable transitional living accommodations.

Dove’s Nest: Charlotte Rescue Mission’s women’s recovery program. Provides a loving, highly-structured Christian environment to help women understand and deal with the core issues of their alcohol and/or drug addiction.

Dove’s Nest Families Program: allows women who are struggling with alcohol and/or drug addiction to bring their children to treatment so that the whole family can heal.

L.E.A.P. (Learning Empowerment Advancement Program): focuses on educational and vocational training programs. Residents work with a counselor to create L.E.A.P. plan which includes long-term and short-term goals.

We believe that professional counseling and therapy is usually necessary to help individuals to overcome the consequences of alcoholism and chemical dependency. Also, we recognize that alcoholism or drug abuse is a “family illness”, and believe that all members of the abuser’s family need to be a part of the recovery process by receiving specialized help themselves. We accept the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous as a reliable and orderly approach to recovery from alcoholism and chemical dependency. We identify the higher power as the person and work of Jesus Christ. We also believe there are some very specific scriptural principles that must be applied to such an individual to assist them in a victorious and fruitful Christian walk.

Charlotte Rescue Mission is transforming lives in the name of Christ by serving people struggling with addiction, poverty or hopelessness with the goal of returning them to society as productive, self-sufficient citizens.
