The Aftercare Program has been created as an extension of SDRM, for those clients who are being re-integrated back into society after successfully completing and graduating a year-long program. The purpose and goal is to provide resources, encouragement, and support while promoting self-sufficiency and self-worth. Alumni receive assistance with job searches, resume writing, interviewing skills, emergency food, case management, spiritual guidance, etc.
The children's Center provides early childhood education and intervention services for children and families of the San Diego Rescue Mission and community partners. It is a licensed preschool with a 1:6 ratio that provides a safe and nurturing environment for children ages 2-5. Intentionally planned curriculum is offered to meet the individual needs of the children. This is important for children who are homeless in order to gain a sense of safety and stability.
The Men's Center seeks to model a restoration and recovery approach for the whole man. The program offers residents: a state licensed substance abuse program for those who are addicted and homeless; Biblical foundation; Recovery groups; case management; therapy; a work therapy program; and access to healthcare through our partnership with a local community health clinic. Classes include: Anger management, conflict resolution, relapse prevention, computer basics, and life skills.
This program provides shelter and services to as many as 60 women and children each night. Many of these women and children are homeless and/or survivors of domestic violence. We are the only shelter in San Diego that has no wait-list and accepts people after hours. In addition to shelter, each family receives a warm meal, hot shower, clothing, and toiletries. Case management and therapy are also provided when needed.
The therapy clinic is comprised of graduate school, Marriage and Family therapy students and Social Workers. Supervision is provided by state licensed therapists. Our ability to provide residents with therapy services alongside their program enables us to address the unique underlying needs of each person. Therapists provide individual, group, and family therapy. This provides support for the clients on their journey out of addiction and homelessness.
San Diego Rescue Mission Recuperative Care Unit (RCU) program addresses the critical needs of housing supportive services for homeless individuals requiring medical attention.The RCU offers up to 29 patients a safe and supportive environment, meals, oversight of medical treatment, and access to follow-up care. In addition to providing for basic needs, we stress the role of holistic care in recovery by offering assistance with establishing primary care and psychiatric care when needed.
This is a multi-phase transitional housing program designed for single adults and mothers with children working toward self-sufficiency. Our mission is to address the various client needs within a trauma informed care framework that focuses on healing previous barriers to independence. While in the program, clients are provided support through case management and access to on-site counseling.
This 12-month recovery program offers rooms to single women and women with children. It comfortably houses up to 70 women and children (0 - 12). Many of the women and children enter the program seeking assistance with issues such as poverty, domestic violence, and drug and alcohol addiction. Classes offered include: parenting, life skills, recovery, basic education, anger management, Bible basics, etc. Parents are also offered assistance with child reunification.
