About the Mission
Our Resurrection Program
We offer a long-term residential program for up to 24 men and 18 women. Each individual is accepted into the program through application. This process ensures that each person receives the kind of care that they need, whether from our facility or another.
The program has two phases.
Phase I: Upon acceptance, the individual moves into our men’s or women’s dorm for 90 to 180 days. Length of stay depends upon individual growth. During this time we provide food, clothing and shelter so that participants can spend the first few months undistracted by employment and the stresses that life can bring. Phase I focuses on helping participants to develop individualized recovery plans with accountability. They attend in-house and outside 12 step groups. They engage in Bible studies, life skills classes, and one-on-one recovery and life coaching. Each person has the opportunity to focus solely on recovery from whatever brought them to homelessness. Connection is key with Godly mentors, sponsors, life and recovery coaches, and local pastors. Based on individual assessment, participants graduate to Phase II.
Phase II: Upon graduation from Phase I, program participants move into one of our two Sober Living Homes on East Pike Street in Clarksburg. We have a men’s home and a women’s home. The Sober Living Homes are dedicated to continuing long-term recovery within a productive and fruitful living community. Residents continue to develop strong relationships and demonstrate transparency in their daily lives as they maintain accountability to the in-house community. Honesty and integrity in all things are key to cultivating connectedness and shared responsibility. Residents gain growing independence, both financially and emotionally, through this process. They are able to discern the direction of their choices and to become the people that they want to be. Based on individual assessment, participants graduate from Phase II. At this point, they typically have a job in place along with independent housing.
The Clarksburg Mission seeks to bridge the gap in community literacy about homelessness and its common co-occurring issue today, substance use disorder. This goal requires additional support and engagement from the greater Clarksburg community. We encourage anyone who is interested in working cooperatively with our graduates to complete an Advocate application. Together, we can help these individuals to find their place in our community and to become fruitful, contributing members of society.

In partnership with the local Louis A. Johnson Veterans Medical Center and the national Veterans Administration, we offer housing for up to 18 male and 3 female veterans. Our on-site case managers also provide access to a wide range of services. The Clarksburg Mission was originally established to assist veterans, so we are grateful for this shared effort to care for our local homeless veterans. Those in need of our services may contact our case managers, Dale Baker and Greg Thompson, at (304) 622-2451.
Food and Clothing Rescue and Redistribution
We also rescue and redistribute food and clothing to those in need. We are always looking for volunteers to organize clothing and food drives. If you are interested in doing so, please complete a volunteer application. You can also contact our Community Liaison for more information at (304) 622-2451.
