Michael’s Place — our Home of Hope & Recovery for ex-offenders transitioning to independent living
Since 2001, 300 men havepassed through the doors of Michael’s Place — our voluntary, residential program for ex-offenders transitioning from jail or prison to independent living. The program provides compassionate help that encompasses residents’ spiritual, physical, psychological, and social well-being.
Like all Society programs, Michael’s Place is nonsectarian, accepting men who are over twenty-one years of age regardless of race, color, or creed.
Michael’s Place admits men who are homeless, willing to live by house rules, participate in a full recovery program (such as AA and/or NA), and attend out patient therapy as needed. The expected stay is approximately six months.
When a resident graduates he will be employed full-time, have a bank account with enough money to establish a place to live, and will have made arrangement for a healthy place to live. In addition, he will have established a support system he can rely on for assistance when meeting the stresses that accompany independent living.
