When the facility opened in Opp in the old Rainer Funeral Home location there were twelve men and two staff.

Now there are nine full time employees, twenty five men and nine ladies who are receiving help in the program.

Great emphasis is placed on studying God’s word each day and then devotionals and classes take place.

The attendants have a six month discipleship class which teaches God’s word.

Sasser stated that he has seen families restored and children having two parents again after participation in the program.

There are many work projects going on with the men and women to make money to keep this program going along with financial help from the community and individuals.

At the conclusion of the program Todd was presented a check and a bountiful supply of items needed for their daily use.owing the program,
