Transforming Lives...One Step at a Time Through Forgiveness, Healing & Restoration
MY FATHER’S HOUSE OF FREEDOM, INC.
Christian Recovery Home for Men
My Father’s House of Freedom Inc., a 501(c)3 tax-exempt minstry, was founded March, 1998 as a vision to reach out to men who are trapped by their addiction to drugs and/or alcoholism, and to provide a safe, healthy home while exposing them to the grace, mercy, and power of God.We have two homes located at 826 North West Street in Jackson, Mississippi, The Dell Barnett House and the Jim Hitt House. We currently have the capacity to house up to twenty-three men.
A resident is expected to make a minimum commitment of six months. New residents are required to pay an admittance fee with the submission of an application.There is also a weekly fee that covers additional household expenses. We also provide assitance in helping the men find employment so they can meet their expense obligations.
Our goal is to foster an atmosphere that is conducive to promoting a healthy environment that will enable participants to face their addiction, understand reasons and causes for their addiction, and create a plan of action to be healthy and responsible to self and family.
Residents are required to attend AA/NA meetings weekly. There are also in-house bible studys, personal development, life changing skills, spiritual awareness and accountability group sessions, family mediation, job skill development, placement, and conflict resolution. Resident attendance for all meetings is mandatory.
Residents of My Father’s House of Freedom are supervised, but the responsibility for their recovery, as well as their spirituality, is in their hands.We will help each man on an individual basis, but at no time will we enable anyone to obtain assistance from us that will lead him back to his former habits.
Most of all, we at My Father’s House of Freedom believe all this can be accomplished through a healthy spiritual and personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
