Overcomers: Reaching Forward
Supporting men on their journey to becoming Overcomers
Men huddle to pray at the close of an Overcomers support group meeting
“Forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on.”
On top of being homeless, many of the men who come to the Mission find themselves ensnared in a life-and-death battle with an addiction to drugs or alcohol.
The battle isn’t easy. That’s where our Overcomers Drug & Alcohol Recovery Support Groups come in. It’s one more way we seek to offer a hand-up and not just a hand-out.
Here’s what being a part of our Overcomers means to a few of our men:
William: “Before I came into the program, I felt all alone. In Overcomers, people know how I feel. I’m thankful for my fellow Overcomer’s ears.”
Doug: “The Overcomers meetings provide me with Christ-centered recovery support & fellowship. It’s a close family. It has brought me closer to Jesus Christ.”
Rodney: “In the group, iron sharpens iron. The Overcomers meeting allows me to keep pressing on.”
Roger: Overcomers is “a constant reminder to me that I am not alone in this struggle.”
