For the small percentage of those who are asked to leave the reasons may vary. It’s good to remember that unless a resident has behaved violently during their stay, they will almost always have another opportunity to try us again in the future. Change is never easy and we are committed to helping as many as we can to make those right changes.
Of the residents who checked themselves out of the Mission nearly half did so because they found housing and work. Still, some left when they decided that they were not willing to follow our rules or policies, and many others simply left without giving a reason. Clearly, there is still much work to be done helping others stay the course towards a life of freedom.
