  19. 19. They are invisible to the naked eye. Yet, we see it in faces of our nation more and more each day. The first one is called METH.
  20. 20. Who are the People Most Affected by Meth Use in the United States?
  21. 21. It Can Happen to Anyone • Meth is not just “poor people’s crack.”
  22. 22. A Blue-Collar Drug? As If By Corey Taule • Meth has earned a reputation for being the drug of choice for the poor and uneducated. But those who have experienced meth, either directly or indirectly, say the drug does not discriminate. In fact, on this the experts are unanimous. Here’s a sampling: The politician: “Some of the people next to you in church, at the table next to you at Rotary or other civic clubs, or very dear friends at this time are desperately struggling with this issue,” said Senate Majority Leader Bart Davis of Idaho Falls.
  23. 23. A Blue-Collar Drug? As If Cont. The activist: “It is not a respecter of demographics,” said John Kulp, who along with his wife, Joyce, runs A Refuge Ministries, a faith-based treatment program in Idaho Falls. The recovering addict: “I ran into everybody,” said Cristina Mallow of Idaho Falls. “I didn’t stick to one group of people. It was a mix.”
  24. 24. A Blue-Collar Drug? As If Cont. The coordinator: “Every population,” said Emily Hoyt, who runs a support group for grandparents who raise their grandchildren. “Every demographic. You name it. Rich. Poor.” The judge: “I think that people in Idaho have their heads in the sand,” District Court Judge Brent Moss said in response to a question about whether Idahoans understand how much meth impacts their communities.
  25. 25. A Statewide Problem Right here in the heart land of Idaho, this national and international scourge is sowing destruction and reaping the lives of men, women and children • In Idaho, the female prison population is growing faster than the male population. The biggest reason is drug use — mainly meth. • The Idaho Department of Correction estimates that nearly 80 percent of its 784 female prisoners need intensive substance abuse treatment. • As of last month, 311 women were incarcerated at the Pocatello women’s prison, which has the capacity for 279. Of the 311, 63 were receiving intensive substance abuse treatment More users every day by Corey Taule •
  26. 26. A Worldwide Problem • The drug is more abused worldwide than cocaine and heroin combined, according to the World Health Organization. • It is popular with workers in overachieving, highly productive economies such as those in Japan and South Korea.
  27. 27. It’s Happening Everywhere in the United States Meth continues to rise in the workplace By Daniel Costello of the Los Angeles Times From attorneys to construction workers, the use of methamphetamines to maintain focus during long hours at the workplace proves both popular, cheap Lawyers use it to deal with grueling workloads. Movie executives say they like how the buzz keeps them focused as they multi-task throughout the day. It’s most popular, researchers say, on construction sites and in manufacturing plants where workers need to stay alert during long hours of repetitive work. And the cost—as little as $100 a month—makes it affordable to many. Anecdotally, users talk of stirring meth into their coffee in the morning before leaving for the office. “A lot of people look at this like it’s No Doz—just another way to keep them awake and on message,” said Nancy Delogu, a Washington, D.C., attorney and an expert in workplace substance abuse. Still, the problem of meth use remains largely unnoticed by much of corporate America
  28. 28. More Meth Information Cont. • According to the study’s preliminary findings, meth use cost area employers $21 million last year—about $42,000 per affected worker—in higher absenteeism and health cost in places as rural as Arkansas. • Among men arrested in Phoenix, 38.3 percent tested positive for methamphetamine. Figures for other cities are: Los Angeles, 28.7 percent; Portland, Ore., 25.4; San Diego, 36.2 percent; and San Jose, Calif., 36.9 percent. • Meth users tend to bottom out more slowly than people who use cocaine or heroin, possibly because the drug is so cheap and doesn’t often lead users into financial ruin, according to a 2002 study in the Journal of Addictive Diseases.
  29. 29. More Meth Information Cont. • The Entertainment Industry Referral and Assistance Center, an employee assistance program for industry workers and their families, says it sees one to two methamphetamine addicts a day. • That figure is up significantly from five years ago, said the program’s director, Dae Medman.
  30. 30. More Meth Information Cont. • According to the California Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs, methamphetamines overtook heroin two years ago as the No. 1 reason Californians are entering drug treatment. • Nationally, use of the drug has also been growing in the Midwest and East, according to a 2002 study by the National Institute on Drug Abuse. • There is too much meth out there to explain this away as a party drug,” says Dr. Richard Rawson, associate director of the Integrated Substance Abuse Programs at the University of California, Los Angeles, who has studied methamphetamines for more than a decade.
  31. 31. More Meth Information • As many as 90 percent of meth addicts will return to the drug. Appropriate treatment takes at least 12 months. -Governor’s Task Force on Methamphetamine Abuse, 2004 • More than 12.3 million Americans (approximately 5.2 percent of the population) have tried methamphetamine, and 1.5 million are regular users. -2003 National Survey on Drug Use and Health
  32. 32. Meth Treatment Numbers Explode • A new report from SAMHSA shows the number of people seeking treatment for Meth use or addiction quadrupled from 1993 through 2003, from 13 per 100,000 to 56 admissions per 100,000 population aged 12 or older. South Dakota jumped from 5 to 90 per 100,000.
  33. 33. But why? Why is there such a huge population using an intensely dangerous drug?
  34. 34. This leads us to our second, even more hidden epidemic… SEXUAL ABUSE
  35. 35. The Truth About Sexual Abuse • The findings emphasize the need to incorporate substance abuse prevention programs into victimization services for children and adolescents, Dr. Ompad said. • Childhood sexual abuse is nearly twice as common among young Injection Drug Users, (IDU) in this study (14.3 percent) than among the general population (8 percent), this study reveals. • “Childhood trauma resulting from forced sexual encounters is an important correlate of later substance abuse,” Ompad said. “Since risk for HIV and other blood-borne infections rises substantially among injection drug users, it is critical to develop appropriate prevention and treatment intervention strategies for these abused children and adolescents.”
  36. 36. The Truth About Sexual Abuse Cont. • “I have noticed through client histories a link between mental disabilities and a history of sexual abuse and meth use. The mental disabilities most prevalent in these cases are bi-polar, post- traumatic-stress disorder, and schizophrenia.” -CCLC Deacon Belinda Zamecnik Employment Specialist, STS • “Victims of childhood sexual abuse are likely to start using injection drugs at a younger age than their injecting peers, according to new research by The New York Academy of Medicine in the April issue of the peer-reviewed American Journal of Public Health.” - Danielle C. Ompad, PhD, an investigator in the Academy Center for Urban Epidemiologic Studies
  37. 37. The Connection Between Sexual Abuse and Drug Abuse Research Summary • A new study offers clues about why children who are sexually abused often use illegal drugs repeatedly later in life, Reuters reported Jan. 7. • Carl Anderson and colleagues at McLean Hospital in Belmont, Mass., found that repeated sexual abuse causes physical changes in the blood flow and function of a brain region called the cerebellar vermis. This region of the brain has also been found to change in people addicted to drugs. • "This part of the brain has been recently implicated in the coordination of emotional behavior, is strongly affected by alcohol, cocaine, and other drugs of abuse, and may help regulate dopamine, a neurotransmitter critically involved in addiction," the researchers wrote.
  38. 38. The Connection Between Sexual Abuse and Drug Abuse Cont. • A similar study was conducted at the University of Buffalo in New York. In that study, researchers found that post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can increase craving in individuals dependent on alcohol and other drugs. • "From our research with trauma victims, we know that intrusive trauma memories are very upsetting to patients, and now we have shown that these trauma memory-induced negative emotions increase craving in substance abusers with PTSD," said Scott Coffey, a psychiatry professor at the Medical University of South Carolina.
  39. 39. The Connection Between Sexual Abuse and Drug Abuse Cont. • Indeed, the literature suggests that as many as 60-84% of adult women in drug treatment programs have been victimized by child sexual abuse (11,14,17,18). • The use of drugs by child sexual abuse (CSA) victims may be related to a process of self-medication (4,19-21) in an attempt to cope with assault-related anxieties, depression, and relationship difficulties. • Moreover, some studies suggest that post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) may be a sequelae to CSA (11,22-25), and substance use has been found to accompany PTSD diagnosis (24,26-31), possibly as a means of self-medication. - American Journal of Drug and Alcohol Abuse, Feb, 2002 by Robert C. Freeman, Karyn Collier, Kathleen M.
  40. 40. The Connection Between Sexual Abuse and Drug Abuse Cont. • In a nationally representative sample, youth who experienced sexual assault were twice as likely as their nonvictimized peers to report past-year alcohol or other drug abuse or dependence. (Kilpatrick, D., Acierno, R., Saunders, B., Resnick, H., Best, C., Schnurr, P. Risk Factors for Adolescent Substance Abuse and Dependence: Data from a National Sample. Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology 68 (1): 1-12. 2000.) • Over one half of adolescent victims said that their first use of substances occurred after the year they were first assaulted. (53.8% for alcohol, 47.8% for marijuana, and 63.5% for hard drugs). (Kilpatrick, D., Acierno, R., Saunders, B., Resnick, H., Best, C., Schnurr, P. National Survey of Adolescents Executive Summary. Charleston, SC: Medical University of South Carolina, National Crime Victims Research and Treatment Center, 1998.)
  41. 41. The Connection Between Sexual Abuse and Drug Abuse Cont. • Adolescent girls who have been sexually abused are more likely to use a greater variety of substances, initiate substance use at an earlier age, and are more likely to use substances to self-medicate painful emotions than non-abused girls. (Harrison, P.A., Fulkerson, J. and Beebe, T. Multiple Substance Use Among Adolescent Physical and Sexual Abuse Victims. Child Abuse and Neglect. Vol. 21. 1997.) • When compared to non-victims, rape survivors were 3.4 times more likely to use marijuana, 6 times more likely to use cocaine, and 10 times more likely to use other major drugs. (Orsillo, S. Sexual Assault Among Females. National Center for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, 2000.)
  42. 42. The Connection Between Sexual Abuse and Drug Abuse Cont. • 38-45% of women in substance abuse treatment programs are survivors of sexual violence. (Steele, C.T. Sexual Abuse and Chemical Dependency. The Source. Vol. 8, No. 3. 1998.) • In a recent study of substance-abusing women who were admitted for services sponsored by the New York City Administration for Child Services - the public agency responsible for responding to reports of child abuse or neglect - 24% of the women reporting had been sexually abused in their childhood. (Kang, S., Magura, S., Laudet, A., Whitney, S. Adverse Effect of Child Abuse Victimization Among Substance-Using Women in Treatment, 1999.) - Wisconsin Coalition Against Sexual Assault 2003
  43. 43. What We Stand For • Our ministry goals are reflected in our motto: “BRINGING THE POWER OF HEAVEN INTO THE PITS OF HELL” • We believe God answers prayers through direct, grassroots outreach.
  44. 44. For change… For restoration… For healing… For HOPE!
  45. 45. How It All Began • HOPE began with Christ Charismatic Liturgical Recovery Church over twenty years ago with a street based ministry in Chicago, Illinois. After relocating out West we started our first house church in Ammon, Idaho with a mission to reach out to those whom society rejected and abused. From there, it has grown into an outreach that has affected hundreds of people struggling to recover and restore their lives. • Our approach has been refined over the past ten years…
  46. 46. Step Number One FIRST… • We identify the problems and treat the whole person for a full recovery from the cycle of substance and sexual abuse. • That means accessing the needs of each person so we can best support someone to a clean, sober, recovered life. • This assessment is a basic pastoral counseling session done in a casual setting to facilitate openness and communication.
  47. 47. Basic Intake • The clients are welcome to bring their family and friends to help us understand their situation along with any files or records they feel comfortable sharing. • They are asked about what their needs are and the goals they want to achieve working with us.
  48. 48. Goals These goals are: 1. Sobriety from drug and alcohol abuse 2. Understanding how past sexual or physical abuse led to present substance problems 3. Working a Christian based Twelve Steps Program in a community setting that will hold the person accountable not only for sobriety, but also for balanced living and relationships
  49. 49. Goals Cont. 4. Being able to “graduate” from such a setting in six months 5. Going on to help and support others in their journey towards sober and stable living 6. Once the initial intake is done, we then can help each person with his or her basic needs for recovery.
  50. 50. What are those needs?
  51. 51. The Four Needs • Housing • Orientation • Prosperity • Education People need HOPE!
  52. 52. Unsafe Environments • Right now many people in recovery are living in unsafe conditions in neighborhoods dominated by circumstances which actually endanger their sobriety. • The following are actual pictures from a community orientated police report on the problem of apartment complex based drug dealing.
  53. 53. Unsafe Environments Cont. This open drug market, in the upper left corner of the photo, sits in front of an apartment complex and across from a nude entertainment club. It is located on a main street in an economically depressed area, within a few blocks from a freeway. Rana Sampson
  54. 54. Unsafe Environments Cont. This open drug market in a small apartment complex is one block off a main street with both street and alley access easing entry and escape. While most open markets use street dealers as their billboard, others, like this one, are more brazen.
  55. 55. Unsafe Environments Cont. The report states in part: • Drug dealing in apartment complexes can attract other nuisance behavior that diminishes the residents' quality of life, such as loitering; littering (including drug paraphernalia and used condoms); trespassing; prostitution (including illegal sexual activity on the property, in nearby yards, in alleys, or in driveways); drug use; abandoned vehicles; speeding vehicles; parking problems; unwanted additional foot, car and bicycle traffic in residential neighborhoods; public drinking; public urination; gang formation;…
  56. 56. Unsafe Environments Cont. • …graffiti (establishing turf ownership of a drug market); assaults; auto theft; auto break-ins; residential and commercial burglaries; possession of and trafficking in stolen property; weapons violations (including gun possession and gun trafficking); robberies; drive-by shootings; or other violent crime (including homicide). • This helps explain why successfully tackling a drug market can bring about substantial decreases in crime in the surrounding area.
  57. 57. How can we expect sober behavior in a drug abusive environment?
  58. 58. A Need For Better Housing “Crucial to successful employment is the access to affordable, safe and controlled housing. I have had clients in successful job placements who were forced to leave their jobs because they lost their housing and had to leave the area to get into another affordable housing situation or were forced to move in with relatives in another area. I have had clients who, during the course of job development, were unable to pay their rent and lost their housing and dropped out of their employment program as a result. I have also had clients who were a success at work, but because of a non-controlled drug- prevalent housing situation, they fell out of their program altogether”. -CCLC Deacon Belinda Zamecnik Employment Specialist, STS
  59. 59. HOPE Offers: • HOUSING: Safe, secured, supervised, substance free environments that are clean and supportive of recovery goals. This funding would support: • 35-50 people placed in nine duplex, triplex and four- plexes • The units within walking distance of downtown Idaho Falls where health services, the local bus system, churches, and our headquarters will be located
  60. 60. HOPE Housing • Support systems such as Christian 12 Step in home meetings would be held twice a week from house to house to bring in-depth grassroots counseling and sobriety support to people in recovery. • Our experience has shown that supportive, spiritually based fellowship is the root of successful recoveries!
  61. 61. HOPE Housing Cont. • HOPE housing will promote zero tolerance of drugs and alcohol through mandatory temperance supportive house rules. • This would include random urine or blood testing as part of the housing agreement, a policy of no alcohol or drugs in or around the premises, and anti-drug workshops twice a year. • COP (Community Orientated Policing) studies show that much of the relapse behavior comes from housing that facilitates drug use and even drug sales. • HOPE will bring the concept of substance free housing into the system of recovery more aggressively into the recovery equation.
  62. 62. HOPE Housing Cont. • Each participant would pay a “tithe” into the program of ten percent of each paycheck from their employment for as long as they participate in the Housing program. The money would help support more housing for other people in the program.
  63. 63. HOPE Housing Cont. • People in HOPE housing would also attend bi-weekly training sessions on developing skills such as budgeting, problem solving, healthy relationships, parenting, job training, educational opportunities, communication and practical recovery tools. These sessions would be run through community counseling sources such as Vocational Rehab, Mental Health Courts, Drug Courts, the local Probation and Parole Departments and the local Health and Welfare Offices.
  64. 64. HOPE Housing Cont. THE PROGRAM NEEDS FUNDING TO PURCHASE AND REHAB: • Our present recovery house and parsonage which is badly in need of repairs and renovation. (We’ve been without a working well on the property for over a year now) • Our next rehab and parsonage facility • The downtown headquarters for the church and the outreach ministry, including a soup kitchen, after school facility and space for adult education programming
  65. 65. HOPE Housing Cont. • The future training and equine therapy grounds • The site for the first North Star-Eagle’s Nest Recovery Villages • COST: $8,781,665 (property purchasing, leasing, and development)
  66. 66. HOPE Offers: • But it’s not enough to have safe and supportive housing. Recovery from addiction and abuse takes supportive, spiritualized healing. • People also need… Orientation
  67. 67. HOPE Orientation According to Webster’s Seventh Edition, Orientation means… 1. an adjustment or adaptation to a new environment, situation, custom, or set of ideas 2. the direction followed in the course of a trend, movement, or development 3. an integrated set of attitudes and beliefs
  68. 68. HOPE Orientation Cont. • Recovery is a whole, new concept for people who are caught up in the pain of sexual and/or substance abuse. What does it mean to live a life without fear? How do you adapt to living without crisis? How do you cope without addictive sex, destructive patterns or substance abuse?
  69. 69. HOPE Orientation Cont. • Living happily and sober or without abuse is a dream world to people coming from a nightmare of hurt, shame and abuse. • To recover, you need to orientate your mind to a whole new way of life.
  70. 70. HOPE Orientation Cont. “People have no idea what happens when you’re a victim of sexual abuse. You feel more than helpless, you feel doomed. And then people wonder why so many victims end up using drugs! There is a way to recover but you need people who have been there to help you get through it and not lose your mind.” - Senior Deacon Lee Duplessis, CCLC’s Victims Advocate Pastoral Counselor
  71. 71. HOPE Orientation Cont. • Right now the church offers weekly, home based meetings for support and healing in a relaxed family setting. Operation HOPE will expand to provide twice weekly, Christian 12 Step Support Meetings. These will reinforce the secular counseling each client receives through the program.
  72. 72. HOPE Orientation Cont. • The meetings will be done home to home, one at night and one during the day to allow as many people as possible to participate without disruption in their work schedules. • Support meetings will feature healthy food and monthly presentations on nutrition, parenting and other life skills. • There will be time for prayer, reflection, fellowship and fun.
  73. 73. HOPE Orientation Cont. • Problems will be shared and solved. • Milestones of life and sobriety will be marked and celebrated. • No one will ever be left out or judged! • And most of all there will be Christian 12 Step Based teaching each week for parents, teenagers, children and single adults.
  74. 74. HOPE Orientation Cont. • Each set of five houses will have a Sobriety Coordinator to help the participants work out their issues on a grassroots level. They will run the 12th Step outreaches and sponsor the people in recovery on a day to day basis. They will live near the five house cluster and be paid by the church to act as facilitators.
  75. 75. HOPE Orientation Cont. • The Sobriety Coordinators are not a substitute for the professional counselors through the various secular agencies. However, they will help empower and enable the basic recovery goals of the participants by facilitating the twice weekly meetings, working with the children and teenagers in the program and helping them move forward to achieving stability and restoration.
  76. 76. HOPE Orientation Cont. • These counselors will play a pivotal part in the recovery of each participant. Some will be clergy. Some will be laity. But everyone will be trained in Basic Christian Counseling skills through a college based program through Eckhart Theological Seminary using the Theophostic Prayer Ministry and The Christian 12 Steps Manual.
  77. 77. HOPE Orientation Cont. • Right now we have our in home clergy working as volunteer Victims’ Advocates, Housing and Employment Director and Pastoral Counseling Coordinators. This funding will allow us to expand the program to take in two Sobriety Coordinators who have gone through the 12 Steps for at least one year. They in turn can now help others and the existing staff can now support their families. • COST: $789,385 (salaries, benefits and training)
  78. 78. Your mind is optimistic and ready for the future. You feel confident and supported by your fellow travelers along the way to recovery. But this new life needs another kind of support to truly succeed. People need… Prosperity
  79. 79. HOPE Prosperity • We need jobs that count. • Employment that is not just busy work, but something that gives people good, solid money in their pockets • A sense of pride • And, a feeling of accomplishment with a job well done.
  80. 80. HOPE Prosperity • HOPE will bring community based jobs to help people help themselves. • Right now there are supportive employment services fitting people into local area jobs that will bring dignity and independence. • That is something Deacon Belinda Zamecnik excels in as an Employment Specialist working with local area job placement services for the disadvantaged and the disabled.
  81. 81. HOPE Prosperity “Access to a sheltered, program affiliated, employment facility has been invaluable to some of my clients, and would be ideal for a recovery program. The in-house employment cooperatives available in Idaho Falls are limited to persons with obvious severe physical or mental disabilities. I only wish there were more comprehensive recovery programs including in-house employment facilities available to those with just as real, but less visible, disabilities.” -CCLC Deacon Belinda Zamecnik Employment Specialist, STS
  82. 82. HOPE Prosperity This funding will help us expand to: • Greenhouses to grow and develop organic based foods for senior citizen programs, homeless shelters, shut-ins, and school lunch programs. Why go elsewhere when we can grow it ourselves in our own backyards year round? • But our biggest employment opportunity will come from an unexpected source: yellow grease
  83. 83. HOPE Prosperity • Yellow grease is a term from the rendering industry. It usually means used frying oils from deep fryers and restaurants' grease traps. It can also refer to lower-quality grades of tallow from rendering plants. • Yellow grease is recovered, traded as a marginally valuable commodity, and has traditionally been used to spray on roads as dust control, or as animal feed additive. But waste restaurant grease has recently become more desirable as one source of bio-diesel fuel for cars.
  84. 84. HOPE Prosperity • Although most bio-diesel is developed from renewable plant sources, namely soybeans, yellow grease is attractive because it's cheap, it turns waste into fuel, and the exhaust smells like french fries. • According to a study by Dr. K. Shaine Tyson of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden, Colorado, the US produces enough yellow grease annually to make 500 million gallons of bio-diesel. (From Wikipedia)
  85. 85. HOPE Prosperity • HOPE will bring in the first phase of an ongoing program to bring alternative fuels on a commercially competitive basis to the Northwestern United States and beyond. • Our bio-diesel recovery factories will collect unused, refuse grease from local area restaurants and fast food facilities and turn them into low cost fuels for sale to state and federal buses, trucking companies, and private heating oil clients.
  86. 86. HOPE Prosperity The grease industry, an offshoot of the rendering industry, revolves around a product called yellow grease. It comes from soy oil, canola oil and other oils that are used to cook everything from French fries to catfish fillets. Large fast-food restaurants generate hundreds of pounds of used oil every month. Smaller restaurants may filter and reuse the oil for a while, but ultimately it has to go, and you can't just pour it down the drain. As my friend Teresa remarks, "I'd be happy to have someone come and take my grease away." Thus we have an industry. (“GREASE RUSTLERS”
  87. 87. HOPE Prosperity • The trade in “yellow grease” is fast becoming an income source for many people around the world. HOPE will take this over looked commodity and turn it into something that will make life golden for many people looking for long term jobs that benefit the community around them.
  88. 88. HOPE Prosperity 1. With a little training, anyone can collect the oil in barrels from the local restaurants…
  89. 89. HOPE Prosperity 2. Run them to our factories…
  90. 90. HOPE Prosperity 3. And then, produce bio-diesel fuels from what is collected every day.
  91. 91. HOPE Prosperity • The cost is competitive…
  92. 92. HOPE Prosperity Biodiesel Production Costs Operating expenses were estimated at 31 cents per gallon (2002 cents), excluding the cost of the oil or grease and energy, and the sale of the glycerol was estimated to reduce the cost by 15 cents per gallon of biodiesel. The biodiesel production process uses, for each gallon, 0.083 kilowatt-hours of electricity and 38,300 British thermal units (Btu) of natural gas. EIA estimates energy costs (in 2002 cents) of 18 cents per gallon in 2004 and 16 cents per gallon in 2005 and 2006. - Bio-diesel Production Methods, Costs and Available Capacity- Anthony Radich – EIA
  93. 93. HOPE Prosperity • Is there a market?
  94. 94. HOPE Prosperity • Any Diesel engine can run on biodiesel, a diesel fuel made from vegetable oil, this book tells you how. In From the Fryer to the Fuel Tank, expert Joshua Tickell unveils the problems with our fossil fuel dependency and offers a surprisingly simple solution: cheap, clean-burning biodiesel. (
  95. 95. HOPE Prosperity • Bio-diesel is already used in the buses for the local INEL site, at Yellowstone National Park, and in many other commercial vehicles. The government is interested in a source for converted yellow grease diesel. How about reclaimed, “throw away” grease being reclaimed by reclaimed, “throw away” victims?
  96. 96. HOPE Prosperity This is just the first of many such plants. • We plan on expanding to include mustard oil and switch grass oil farms and extraction plants to service community and in-house needs for fuel. • Our on-going five to ten year plans include re- designing the diesel engine to fit an aerodynamic and modern day car with recycled materials, produced in environmentally friendly factories.
  97. 97. HOPE Prosperity • These plants will not only employ our target group, but also many other people struggling to make ends meet. Idaho must find another source of income since we are faced with a shrinking market for our “famous potatoes.” Renewable, agriculturally and culturally based fuel could be the answer for this state and others around it. • COST: $223,000
  98. 98. HOPE Education • Lastly, people need: EDUCATION • It is education that gives the wind to the sails of our dreams…
  99. 99. HOPE Education • Most people in recovery lack the educational skills they need to have a viable future for themselves and their children. Our own personal experiences with the people in our church outreach have shown that abuse helps to destroy a person’s self esteem.
  100. 100. HOPE Education If you have always been beaten down… • Why not use drugs? • Why not drink? • Why believe in yourself at all?
  101. 101. HOPE Education • For many people, education is the key to believing in a better life beyond the pain of what they can see. • Right now, the church helps with coordinating scholarships and tutoring for children and adults who want to learn in supportive atmosphere.
  102. 102. HOPE Education HOPE will expand our educational outreach into the lives of recovery people with: • Coordinating tutors, after school programs, and even private scholarships for children from abusive or dysfunctional households. • There can be no future for our children unless they can keep up with the demands of a 21st century education. Some day we hope to have a full school system of our own that is orientated towards recovery goals. But for now, we will bring support to the ones which already exist.
  103. 103. HOPE Education • Adult education that teaches everything from private investigation to English as a second language. If we want people to become a part of our society as recovered members or United States citizens, we need to teach them what they need, not stand on the sidelines and berate them. HOPE will work with such schools as Professional Institute of Education to help participants achieve career certifications, diplomas, or degrees.
  104. 104. HOPE Education • No dream is beyond what can be achieved. • Funding will pay for computers, online classes, supplies, books, equipment and part time teacher’s stipends. • COST: $201,700
  105. 105. HOPE Program Costs • Total cost for HOPE program: $9,995,750

  115. 115. How much does it cost to change someone’s life?
  116. 116. The Difference “The right amount of money put in the right hands, at the right place, at the right time, can mean the difference between life and death for a lot of people.” -Deacon Robert Zamecnik HOPE Project Manager
  117. 117. What we are facing now is a crisis unlike anything we have ever seen as a nation.
  118. 118. Conclusion A recent A & E report, “Meth’s Deadly High”, broadcasted on Sunday, June 25th, 2006, outlined the devastation this drug has caused: • The most frightening one is this: meth causes permanent damage to the brain and raises the brain’s level of dopamine, which converts a normal brain into one similar to a paranoid schizophrenic. That same researcher discovered that 1 out of every 4 person admitted to the emergency rooms in California is a meth user.
  119. 119. Conclusion Cont. • Imagine that many people with PERMANENT brain damage! • Never before have we had so many people held captive in the chains of such a destructive force as meth.
  120. 120. We have to reach out and bring healing and support to the families imprisoned in this nightmare.
  121. 121. We also have to heal the roots of the nightmare-which is sexual abuse!
  122. 122. Our program must expand to help counter this epidemic of abuse and enslavement.
  123. 123. We already have twenty-five other pastors from all over the country and all over the world that are waiting to be trained on how to set up Christian Recovery Churches, houses and villages. They in turn will train others. And it will grow… Like dawn in the middle of the darkness of night.
  124. 124. Help bring us HOPE!
  125. 125. Joel 4: “The LORD says, change your life, not just your clothes. God's giving you a teacher to train you how to live right—Teaching, like rain out of heaven, showers of words to refresh and nourish your soul…” "I will give you back what you lost to the stripping locusts, the cutting locusts, the swarming locusts, and the hopping locusts…” “You'll eat your fill of good food. You'll be full of praises to your God; You'll know without question that I'm in the thick of life with Israel, that I'm your God, yes, your God, the one and only real God. Never again will you be despised.”
