This program is listed in the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices.
As the hands and feet of Christ, we are to tend to the broken and seek out the lost the same way Jesus tended to our wounds and sought us out. To do this, we must be willing to meet our brothers and sisters where they are, and use Jesus' example of meeting the needs of our neighbors. We must remember effective churches don't simply meet the spiritual needs of their congregants, but also the psychological, social, and physical needs.
