The Springfield Rescue Mission’s main facility at 19 Bliss Street houses the Men’s Rehabilitation Center and the administrative offices of the Mission. On any given night, up to 40 men are enrolled in the Men’s New Life Program, a 12-month residential program that offers comprehensive services for men facing obstacles that prevent them from breaking the cycle of homelessness and addiction. The goal of the Men’s New Life Program (NLP) is to provide substance-abuse rehabilitation services to individuals in a supportive environment so they may begin to develop and implement long-range plans toward a productive life. NLP also helps individuals who are homeless due to other circumstances and provides participants the opportunity upon graduation for education, career training, job placement and follow-up support. Men who complete the NLP program requirements are publicly recognized in our annual Cap and Gown Graduation Ceremony, to which NLP participants, their families, staff and donors are invited.
