If you would like additional information about the Ventura County Rescue Mission's Recovery Program, please call (805) 436-4591. 

The Ventura County Rescue Mission offers an extensive Recovery Program. It is a free, ten month, residential Christian based, recovery program that provides Biblically based structure and applied discipline for living an overcoming life.  Our program provides individual counseling and case management as well as daily classes that include: Christian 12 Steps, Anger Management, and classes dealing with Biblical and Spiritual issues.

For those interested in enrolling into the Recovery Program, we require an in-person interview of all prospective program clients. These are conducted every Monday - Thursday at 10:30 - 11:30am. It is recommended, if possible, that you bring the following: social security card, driver's license of ID card, and a current T.B. test card.

The Rescue Mission invites men who are homeless and suffering from addiction problems the opportunity to learn about a Biblical solution to their need and about having a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ. 

All Mission goods and services are provided to each recovering client at no cost and are made available solely through the generous support of our donors which include: individuals, businesses, churches and foundation grants.

In addition to the educational classes that the Program provides, we also make available to our residents a variety of vocational paths and skill development. We offer our clients the benefits of an outstanding culinary school, warehouse worker skills, computer literacy skills, and other kinds of vocational preparation.
