Mission Statement :
It is our mission to equip struggling teens with the knowledge and skills that will allow them to not only remain drug free, also to graduate from high school, excel into college, becoming respectful, productive members of society. We feel that we are not only responsible for their success, but more so the outcome of their failure. We must act now and address these critical issues before their lifestyle prevent them from reaching short and long term life goals.
It is the philosophy of S.O.B.E.R. International to assist persons with developing and maintaining coping skills that facilitate adjustment and integration within their living environments and community. Clients and family members are empowered to make decisions about their care with the expected outcome of an increased quality of life.
In 1997, my wife and I and her four children were homeless for eleven months due to a combination of drug use and our welfare system. We found ourselves sleeping in parks, banded cars, campgrounds and where ever else we could have laid our heads.
As we shared with other homeless people, we spent hours and hours sharing with them and asking them questions like, “How did they become homeless and what they had thought of it. Most of them denied that it had to do with drug use and some of them stated that they enjoyed not having any responsibilities. “Well, that wasn’t the case with us!” We wanted help, but people just didn’t look our way. Sometimes people made us feel like if we were invisible to them.
Towards the end of our homelessness. We were invited to a little church call ‘Trinity full Gospel” where we received Jesus Christ as our savior and was prophesized by a pastor that we had a calling in our lives to help families who are in need. The season had come that God opened the doors for us to fulfil HIS word by opening our own Counseling Center and Transitional living home.
My wife and I stand firm that “GOD will not give us a vision without the provision.”
GOD is Good!
