What Does Legacy Do
Legacy Center is a unique 9-month faith-based residential discipleship and recovery program with the mission of helping women to overcome the life-controlling issues that are keeping them from moving forward. We provide hope and help for those who are lost or are struggling with the results of bad choices they have made in life, as well as, other situations that are destroying lives and families.
What can I expect during the nine months?
The Legacy Center is not a rehab facility, shelter, halfway house, hospital, or safe house that only provides a temporary solution to these issues. It is a place where lives are changed and a new normal is realized through a life built on the foundation of Jesus Christ and through practical principles to educate, equip and empower.
EDUCATE Our mission is accomplished by providing a godly home environment with an emphasis on developing a relationship (not a religion) with God. Those who choose to enter the program participate in Bible Studies, spiritual counseling, life management classes, parental coaching, financial guidance, career planning, and mentoring.
EQUIP While at the Legacy students learn how to live a sober and healthy lifestyle with God at the center - to be healthy physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Students learn how to manage a household (cooking, cleaning, budgeting, ect.), be part of a functional family, and enjoy life without the hindrance of drugs, alcohol or other life controlling issues.
EMPOWER As the Legacy students proceed through the nine-month commitment they will be encouraged, and assisted, to seek God for His plan and purpose for their life - to evaluate the gifts and talents He has placed in them. By using Job Skill Assessments and Career Planning we are able to help bring together those God given gifts and talents with life skills and help students to establish a career, not just a job.
What happens after the nine months?
