How wonderful would it be if no one was homeless? Unfortunately, not only are people homeless, but the number of homeless individuals is increasing.
Because of the need, Hiway 80 Rescue Mission is always looking to expand its facilities. In Tyler, our newest facility is Triumph Village, opened in 2018. We offer the New Creation Discipleship Program for men there now. In the future we plan to add a commercial sized kitchen, dining hall, classroom space, laundry and a chapel. That will take your support. So, please consider supporting our mission with your generous donations.
The New Creation Program is the opportunity for a new start in life for men whose lives have been derailed by alcohol abuse, drug abuse, or other destructive behaviors.
Men in the New Creation Program are in Bible Study classes every day where they learn how to make right choices for their lives and surrender their lives to God. Life skills classes and recovery classes are provided to help program men move forward. Program men are also involved in daily work therapy and assignments. These chores help men learn the responsibility and self-discipline necessary for long term growth. They are required to attend daily devotionals and memorize scripture on a weekly basis. Each man also meets with a case manager once a week. The case management meetings provide the opportunity for counseling, self-examination, and accountability.
Men in the program are also required to connect with a local church and local recovery group. This helps men to begin to develop a spiritual foundation outside of the Mission.
Twice a year, the Mission holds a graduation service for the men who have completed the New Creation Program. For all of them, it is a great accomplishment. Some have gone on to college, obtained full time employment and restored relationships with family members.
Hiway 80 Rescue Mission provides services that make a real difference in the lives of the men in our community who are in need of help.
