Recovery – John 316 Mission


John 3:16 Mission offers comprehensive recovery programs for men and women seeking to escape homelessness and rebuild their lives.

The programs are faith-based and emphasize a biblical therapeutic model of recovery. Trained staff and counselors help guide program students through each phase of the program.

Men’s Residential Program

The New Creation Recovery Program for men is a live-in recovery program that takes about 11 months from intake to graduation. By the time of graduation, a recovery student is employed and ready to live independently.

Women’s Residential Program

The RENEW Recovery Program for homeless or under-resourced women is a residential program for women who are ready to work for life transformation. The program takes about one year to complete. Women will learn Biblical truths and commit to their recovery to be God-dependent, contributing members of society.


Program students participate in group meetings, individual counseling sessions, retreats, Bible studies, work therapy, service projects and more. Participants also receive help connecting with other community resources including health care, tutoring, legal services, and employment preparation.

A key focus of the program is to help students become lifelong Christian disciples who are equipped with the emotional, psychological and spiritual tools to live successful lives and give back to their communities.

Before intake into either the Men’s or Women’s programs, prospective students are evaluated for their readiness and compatibility with the Mission’s recovery aims and methods.
