What does it take

Commitment
FaithWorks students work hard to improve themselves. Learning valuable job skills is a challenge, so students must commit themselves to the full thirteen weeks of the program.

Motivation
The FaithWorks class meets Monday-Friday from 9a.m. to 4p.m. During the second half of the program, students volunteer sixteen hours a week in an internship of their choosing. Experience and job training is offered through class and the internship, and students must be motivated to complete the process.

Sobriety
FaithWorks is designed for drug-free and alcohol-free adults, including those who have been clean and sober for six months. Applicants who have been clean for less than six months may be considered if the are currently participating in a recovery program.

Other requirements:
  • 18 years of age or older
  • Reading ability at the 6th grade level or higher
  • Willingness to participate in five individual counseling sessions

If this sounds like the opportunity you have been waiting for, come by 1229 N. Mockingbird to meet some of the staff and register for class. It's free. You will see how the aims and purposes of FaithWorks can become your goals as well. If you come while class is in session, you may visit with students and share lunch with them and the staff.

The first week I came I felt my life changing. I went home everyday exhausted but a good tired. I was told I matter. ME!!! WOW No one but my kids and church family had ever told me that. I felt my kids and my friends at church were obligated to. But here was strangers telling I could realize my dream. I hadn't even had a dream or so I thought. They help me find out what I wanted out of life. I had been abused all my life. It was what I expected from people. But God had another plan for me.
