Alumni Program

Fairhaven Rescue Mission's Alumni Program is designed to encourage and support former program men maintain a life free of addiction through Bible study, group meetings and recreational opportunities.  The Alumni Program is a network of former program men who come together to help encourage other former program men as well as the men who are currently on the program.

Through its Alumni ministry, Fairhaven maintains regular contact with former residents who are once again living on their own.  The objective is to offer these individuals the assistance and encouragement they need to keep their newly established lives on track.  The Alumni Program is a personalized follow-up ministry to help men during the transition from the Mission to their new home.  This ministry provides encouragement and accountability to help them deal with real life situations.

The client's lives are stabilized and their problems brought under control through the structured and sheltered environment at the mission.  When they leave they have a strong sense of purpose and added meaning to their lives.  However, this success can quickly vanish if they revert back to their old ways of coping with problems.  Sometimes they begin association with friends from their past who provide a strong negative influence exerted on them through repeated temptations, and which can ultimately cause them to relapse.

Alumni have gained the knowledge necessary during their stay at the Mission to prevent relapse, they need to apply that knowledge to their daily lives.  So we try to provide departing residents with additional encouragement and support to strengthen their resolve and commitment.  This way, they are not alone as they relearn through experience how to handle real life issues and the tough times that come to everyone.
