If accepted, a date will be set to review house guidelines and to move in.

11 Covenant House Support Services Include….. Case Management- Individual Progress Plan Community Service Individual Counseling Life Skills-Budgeting, Cooking, Arts and Crafts, Communication, Household maintenance, etc. Referral to Community Resources Recovery Group Discipleship & Spiritual Enrichment- Bible Study, Worship, mentors Educational Planning/Tutoring Health & Wellness Peer Support Pastoral and Church Support House Meeting

12 Discipleship & Spiritual Enrichment Some women come with Christian experience and some come with very little faith but are open to learn. Our hope is that each woman have a saving faith in the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and seek to live a life of faith. Residents must attend worship and bible study every week. They receive a bible upon intake and prayer in each meeting. Many join the church and become active in the life of the church.

13 Health and Wellness After years of abuse, it is important for those in recovery to establish good health care practices to strengthen their body. Referrals are made to doctors, dentists & psychiatrists. Nutrition and Fitness are also encouraged and taught.

14 Case Management Residents meet with the Program Director to develop an Individual Progress Plan which entails setting goals with each resident to be reviewed periodically for re-evaluation and assessment for growth

15 Life Skills Many of the women need support in learning how to budget their meager resources. Basic Skills such as cooking,cleaning, laundering are residents responsibility. Some women are in need of education in these areas. Many of the women need support in learning how to budget their meager resources.
