U-Turn for Christ Kaua'i is a non-denominational ministry designed to help restore to wholeness adult men who are suffering from substance abuse, and for them to once again become healthy members of their families and society,
Men come to the ranch, situated on the beautiful garden island of Kaua'i. The peaceful, serene surroundings help to clear the mind so that the men can concentrate on who they are to God and who He is to them. We live with the basics: in bunk houses with solar electricity and septic. All meals and snacks are provided during the first 60 days. Men earn income during the next 6 months and learn to budget for their rent and food.
A typical day consists of waking at 5:00 am for the bonfire pit, reading of Proverbs and prayer time. After the first two weeks, the men actively work on painting jobs contracted to the ministry, or on the property 6 days a week, 8 hours a day and will head out on work crews after breakfast. There is time on the weekend for relaxing, sometimes outings to the beach for surfing and snorkeling or trips to the local waterfalls are taken. Letter writing time is Thursday, Saturday and Sunday evenings. Physical fitness is important too and encouraged during this time. Telephone calls are not permitted during 1st Phase. After dinner, group time, discipleship meetings, Bible studies and church services at Calvary Chapel North Shore vary each evening. No drugs including anti-depressants are allowed on the ranch. Call for more information.
The non-refundable donation for the program is $3,450., which includes all room and board and then after the first 60 days, men work with a commercial and residential painting contractor and start earning funds. They then pay a nominal monthly rent for the duration of the 8-month commitment.
No refund is given if the attendee walks away from the program during this phase. If attendee decides to return, there is a $100 restart donation for each week that the attendee is out of the program, up to 4 weeks or $400. After 4 weeks, the entire donation of $3,450. is requested to restart the program from the beginning. 60 days in 1st Phase must be consecutive for graduation. Maximum success is achieved by completing the 2nd Phase also, which is why it is a full 8-month commitment. During the 2nd phase the men are obligated to continue working with the ministry and pay their own room and board. Stewardship of funds is developed, and we do not want the family to provide any financial assistance during this time.
Call us for more information. We are here to answer your questions. We also have references of past men that have gone through the program.
