Metanoia Houses

Christlife Ministries offers Metanoia Housing in two locations; Lake (43 Beds) and B Street (7 Beds). Metanoia (meaning "a change of mind") House is a voluntary men's transitional housing program designed to provide a safe and healthy living environment. We are dedicated to assisting our residents with everything needed to be successful in life through living skills, work readiness, and case management. The Wrap-Around Support Process assists residents with identifying strengths versus needs to assist them with accomplishing goals. Residents are expected to pay an intake fee of $250 upon move-in and rent of $200/week or $30/day.

Application Process for Currently Incarcerated Applicants: 

  1. Complete the "Pre-Release Inquiry Form" 

  2. Facility Staff should email the completed form to the Pre-Release Coordinator, Cindy Phillips.

  3. The pre-Release Coordinator will respond with the most current and accurate application via email and request to schedule an interview with the Executive Director.

  4. The applicant will complete a phone interview with Executive Director, afterwards, he will inform the Pre-Release Coordinator if the application has been accepted or denied. 

  5. The Pre-Release Coordinator will reach out to Facility Staff with the applicant's acceptance or denial letter. 

    1. Letters of acceptance denote that should the applicant's parole plan be accepted and a bed is available, they will be allowed to move in upon their release

      1. Christlife Ministries Staff cannot give permission or advocate for applicants to parole to our programs, especially out of county clients, this decision is ultimately at the discretion of parole.

  6. Parole should conduct a Pre-Parole Investigation and inform Christlife Ministries of the applicant's expected release date. 

    1. The pre-Release Coordinator will note the expected release date and assign a bed hold. This hold will remain in effect until one week after the expected release date. If the client does not move into the bed within this timeframe without prior arrangements, the hold will be released and given to the next applicant, so it is important that any changes be reported to staff.
