We work with the Minnesota Department of Corrections to help build a network of support for those released. We can provide support and housing until we help him with a job or career.

 

Housing


Overcomers International Fellowship provides 54 beds as well as safe and supportive care for those in need of Board & Lodging and transitional housing. Our residents come from the streets, treatment centers, hospitals, jail or prison to discover a place to begin a new life by the Grace of God. Go HERE for more information.

 

Mentor Program


Overcomers International Fellowship is always in need of mentors to work with our residents. A mentor is someone who imparts wisdom to and shares knowledge with a less experienced colleague. We are looking for people who can coach, counsel, teach, or model successful behaviors. What role they play depends on their abilities and their mentoree’s needs. In short, mentoring is about building a relationship, and the nature of the relationship depends on the individuals involved. Mentors should be willing to make a minimum commitment of one year, and to invest a minimum of eight hours per month.

 

Veterans Outreach


Our Veterans are not the forgotten at Overcomers International Fellowship. We meet the needs of homeless veterans that come into our program by providing meals, support groups, rides to their appointments, shelter and/or transitional housing.

 

We also network with case managers to work with our hero’s of freedom.

Matthew 25:34-40

34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:


35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:


36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.


37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?


38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?


39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?


40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
