PROTECT YOUR FUTURE.
To get a better insight into who we are and the ways in which we transform lives
We now offer the HiSET curriculum (formerly GED.) This award-winning, self-paced educational program gives students the skill set and diploma to compete for the high paying, career-building jobs available in today's market.
RECOVER AND HOPE
There is only one explanation for our high success rate and that is Jesus Christ. Our program is based on the principle that only Christ can truly change a life.
THE BRIDGING HOPE
THE BRIDGING HOPE TRANSITION HOUSE is a new phase of the ministry centered on recent graduates of the 12-month program. Its main focus is facilitating the transition back into the workforce, the local church and the community at large.
