Sustain the Change Recovery for Life
We are seeing a mighty move of God with people who come seeking the Lord and His healing from past wounds from abuse, neglect, depression, anxiety and PTSD as well as strongholds that are being torn down.
 
Celebrate Recovery was founded in 1991 by Pastor John Baker of Saddleback Church with the goal of overcoming hurts, habits, and hang-ups.  Not only addictions like sex disorders, drug, alcohol, or food addictions but wounds from rejection and abuse. Celebrate Recovery is a twelve-step program based on Christian principles.  At the Faith-Based and Community Initiative Conference in 2004, U.S. President George W. Bush praised Celebrate Recovery as being able to "change hearts" where government cannot.
 
Men's Transitional Housing Facility

The desperate struggle of men in our programs being able to find shelter birthed our Housing Program.  Shield Ministries provides housing for men who are homeless as a result of their addictions, PTSD, and/or past criminal record. Applicants go through an intake process in which restrictions and program rules are clearly communicated. The intake process is designed to assess the individual's  basic needs and desire for personal growth that will enable self-sufficiency. Housing is limited to those who are enrolled and actively participate in the Shield Ministries Program.

Random drug testing is administered frequently. Random inspections are also made by Shield Ministries and by Probation, Pardon, & Parole Services.

Weekly housing program fees of $110.00 per week are due each Friday for the upcoming week. Shield Ministries accepts referrals from local Probation, Pardon, and Parole services, Veteran's Administration, Department of Corrections, Charleston County Sheriff's Office, & Trident United Way.
