New Life Program

The root causes of substance abuse are many and deep. As residents have their basic needs met, they have the mental and emotional space to address those root causes. Some residents take advantage of TCUGM’s New Life Recovery Program. New Life is a thirteen month long residential recovery program for both men and women. New Life uses the principles found in the Bible to address the whole person. It addresses the spiritual, mental, emotional, social and physical roots of addiction.

New Life builds a strong foundation for recovery through accountability, counseling services, involvement in recovery groups, encouraging participation in a local church body and a focus on developing individual skills for successful living. New Life Program goals are to develop self-management and personal commitment to recovery while developing a vision and plan for lifetime success for each program member.

Case Management

Every shelter resident has the opportunity to work with a case manager. The case management program at the Tri City Union Gospel Mission is driven by compassion, respect, kindness, dignity and empathy for clients. The program is designed to be client driven. The case manager and client work holistically together on goals and objectives to achieve self-sufficiency and success.

The goal for both client and case management is that everyone benefits, especially the client, when they reach their optimum level of wellness in their mental health, self-management, functional capability, and spiritual development.

During the duration of case management the case manager and client will work on the areas that pertain to the client’s goals and objectives. Those areas can be spiritual development, employment, housing, financial, child care, education, language such as ESL classes if needed, legal issues, transportation, mental health, family issues, physical health, addiction and recovery issues.

The goal is to see clients succeed and thrive in re-engaging in the community and therefore strengthening both.
