Residence

NSPIRE leases apartments and houses that provide excellent living arrangements for all of our participants, now over 100 strong. The consistent housing environment allows our clients the stability to work on rebuilding their lives and futures.   

Education

Each client is required to participate in continued education. This may represent obtaining a GED, an online certificate program, 2-year technical degree, or a full four-year degree. The NSPIRE program awards a $500 grant to each client to assist with books, supplies, tuitions, etc.

Counseling

The program participants meet weekly with a clinical psychologist with specific experience in addiction, abuse and post-traumatic stress disorder. They meet in groups as well as individually. The group sessions focus on survival skills, living and working in community and addressing fears and life changes during this transition.

FAITH

The cornerstone of this program is faith in God. The program emphasizes living a Spirit-led life. Each week, the group meets for church services, prayer, and bibles studies.

Health and Fitness
