A Fresh Start

The Transformation Program is a residential program available to the guests of the Allentown Rescue Mission. It helps men heal through individual assessments and one-on-one counseling. Through faith-based and life-skills classes, the program redirects the trajectory of men’s lives.

In the program, the men have access to Bible studies, counseling, case management, mental health treatment through our agency partners, and medical treatment through our DeSales Free Medical Clinic.  The program strives to make each man more employable and workforce ready through a series of skill-building classes, such as job readiness and computer skills, personal finance, resume building, and anger management.  After completing the Transformation Program, our graduates are eligible for paid, supervised jobs on our Clean Team while continuing their biblical studies and connecting with a local church.

Transformation Program participants are mentored through a gradual process back into the community, to aid in the restoration of family relationships, and to build a strong relationship with a local church to help prevent relapse and to become a productive member of the community.

Admission Procedure:  The Transformation Program requires a commitment to change.  All men enrolled have been screened through our Emergency Shelter.
