What is Second Step Living Program?
We are a live-in, mentoring, discipleship and recovery community.
We have all seen the devastating effects of addiction and abuse, of lives born into poverty and children raised without a strong family support system. Our society has suffered, our families have suffered and we have personally suffered. In the traditional 12 step recovery programs, the second step states that we “Came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity”. This is where our name and program concept comes from. Once someone has made it past the “denial stage” of the first step and realize that they are powerless to change without the help of God and others, we are there to join them on their journey toward healing and restoration.
Second Step Living carries a strategic vision for coming alongside the broken and fallen ones in our community. We believe that by supporting and loving them as friends and mentors, together, we can break the addiction and hopelessness that has stolen them. We have seen the healing that takes place by providing a safe, stable and encouraging environment for people to live while they are working through the issues of their life. Combining live-in, mentoring relationships with the support of a strong community has proven to change lives.
A dedicated team of volunteers take their commitments seriously to love and guide women and their children on their journey. This is accomplished through in depth teaching and training (Bible base curriculum), counseling (individual and group), weekly chapel services (Bible Studies), work programs, recreational and fitness activities and adult education classes.
We celebrate every woman who becomes part of our community rather through our live in program or women who simply attend workshops and classes. We recognize the opportunity to put an end to the tragic cycles of addition and abuse. We rejoice because the individual has expressed a desire to escape their addictive or abusive lifestyle.
Second Step Living is an non profit entity under the umbrella of Outreach Ministries International. We do not receive Federal or State funds. Our program is built upon partnerships between the faith community and the business community. Joining the spiritual guidance and influence of local churches and ministries alongside the support of our local business owners will produce true life-changing results. Second Step Living is governed by a board of directors made up of local Christian business men and women.
