Letter from the Director


Greetings from SHLR, 

 We are coming to the close of another great year, that was filled with many challenges. Our staff has contributed many long and trying hours, but never giving up or giving in. We had many successes and accomplishments during the year. Men reuniting with their families, men hired full time at their job assignments, men reconnecting with GOD, as well as men being healed. We had a wonderful holiday season which started with Harvest Season, parties, great foods, and awards and festivities men were able to enjoy with invited families. Thanksgiving was an awesome experience, and clients and staff alike showed their thankfulness to God and each other. Christmas was a wonderful and enjoyable celebration of the birth of our Savior. The Christmas party and graduation for the month of December was a huge success, with over 30 family members, volunteers, and guests in attendance. 

We have achieved great quarterly success with the help from the administrative support team; Ms. Ann, Jasmine, Melanie, Seth, AD Pastor Potter, DOO - Kenny Lane, VP - Kyle Bennett, and last but most definitely not least our Leader, The Man of God Pastor Brad Bowie. Thank you all for the support and leadership!!

We have seen an uptick in community support during this last quarter of the year with the help of Greater Friendship Christian Church, Healing Hands Ministries, Watershed Social Hospital, Pastor Demetrice Swift(Tyson Foods), St. Marks Baptist Church, Fellowship Bible Church, and many other private donors and supporters. Also, our volunteers' ministers have shown up in record numbers, for them all we are thankful. We are equally thankful to our partners at ACC, directors, managers, and all the officers that help provide opportunities for our men to succeed.

We at SHLR are looking forward to a prosperous new year to serve the Lord, with dedication and commitment. Isaiah 43 says God will do a new thing and you will see it with your eyes!!! Souls being saved, men becoming the men God has called them to be, and many victories on the horizon. 

We are excited about the upcoming Battle in the Saddle barrel race in Jan 2022. The buzz about it is growing strong around SHLR, and many are wanting to participate in that success! Thanks again to all that support our commitment to serving our clients! 

Christmas Celebration!

Client of the Quarter - Richard Tutt


I came into this program on May 27, 2021. I have been here for 6 months now. Really was happy to be here and out of prison and ready to start my next chapter in my life. Since coming to this program it has helped me more than I could ever imagine. This place has helped me to gain employment with a good company that pays well and I love doing the work.

The program has helped me save over $2,000 since I have been here. Now that I'm full time I started saving my own money and I have saved around $2,000 as well. I also have started on working on getting my driver license back, which will take some time but it is progress. I have also started getting my teeth fixed because I neglected them while I was in my addiction, but I'm happy now to start getting them fixed.

Another thing that I am happy about, and thank God for, is that I have my daughter and her mother back in my life after putting them through my addiction. I thank God every day for them being back in my life. The thing that helped me the most since I have been here is that I volunteer my free time when I'm not at work, and I have been patient in my recovery and letting God do His work with me. I just wanted to thank God for how far I have come and can't wait to see where I go from here.

Staff of the Quarter - Zachary Bales


Zachary Bales is a super great team member, that is always looking for areas of the ministry to help in.

He has made long strides in his Christian walk and service work. Mr. Bales is a driver that functions most like a Transportation Coordinator. He is very dependable, and has superior work ethics.
