We produce a "One in Christ" newsletter that is sent to incarcerated Christians in prison and county jails. Our Ypsilanti community includes an Entry House and a Step-Down House. Our participants gather for prayer Monday through Friday mornings, and prepare dinners Saturday through Thursday. Tuesday, Wednesday evenings are Faith Studies, and Life-Skills/Open Topic meetings. We are a sober community and conduct testing for all substances. We support sobriety, job assistance, mental and medical needs through partner referrals. The guys share household chore responsibilities. Each new resident is matched with a mentor with our partner organizations. Our Entry House has a on-site House Supervisor that supports our Campus Manager. The program could last anywhere from 3 months to a year (or longer in our Step-Down House).
