The second floor of the GSTC building property has been designated for our Christ-centered transitional men’s home. Fundraising income to date is over $113,000.00. The projected cost of our remodel will be around $200,000.00, according to our project architect, David Miraflor, owner of Line 2 Design. Currently, we are applying for a parking revision from the Stockton City Planning Department to reduce the required number of parking spaces. The cost for the revision is $3,400.00. Once this is approved, we will have our construction permit to start remodeling.
We are currently in need of a licensed Contractor that believes in what we are doing; not for the money, but for the saving of the souls and restoring men back to their families. Other needs we have for this project, are volunteers that have the abilities in the fields of plumbing, electrical and framing (including construction). We are also in need of general laborers that can help for whatever is needed.
Our Men’s Home Committee meets every other month to bring current updates and suggestions to our project. We are currently accepting new Committee members to help.
Our intake procedure will include a screening process. The requirement is a desire to have sobriety, a Christ-centered life and to be accessible to job training. Their short-term goals will include daily disciplines which include personal hygiene, daily chores, consistent daily prayer and bible studies. We will teach and offer these men new birth experiences.
This 4 to 12 week period will allow the men to find sobriety, a feeling of dignity, and thus becoming functional and responsible. There will be random drug testing through the length of stay.
The Restoration Station's job training programs, will include thrift store stocking and sorting donations, determining values and pricing of donations, learning to run a cash register, building maintenance (janitorial) and vehicle repairs through our car donation program. Also a lawn and garden crew will be working in our community. Those seeking higher education can receive a grant funding for their aftercare. These positions will not only provide job training, but will also create a bank account, which will allow us to provide housing placement at the end of the 6 month to 1 year program. The Restoration Station Men’s Home is a charity extension of the Good Samaritan Training Center, at no cost to the men in our community seeking help.
