Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Addiction continues to be one of the gravest dilemma in our communities. As national overdose deaths continue to exceed 100,000 annually, drug overdose is the number one cause of accidental death in the United States. Statistics also show an adverse economic impact of over $500 billion. Addiction negatively impacts every aspect of an individual's life including mental and physical health, employment, spiritual well-being, and family relationships. The majority of cases involving homelessness, domestic violence, and human trafficking involve drug abuse. If we can help someone come out of a lifestyle of addiction and break the cycle in families, the exponential value of that one changed life is priceless.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Faith Recovery aims to help men struggling with Substance Use Disorder find hope and recovery. Our whole person approach helps individuals spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically. By providing a safe living environment, clinical evidence based practices, and the integration of Biblical principles, our goal is that individuals are equipped to live a life of balanced recovery. We also aid in the healing process of broken family relationships that addiction often causes. Our hope is that those in our program discover their God-given purpose, realize their self-worth, and attain long-term sobriety.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
