Our Mission

Benilde Hall Program’s mission is to promote balanced and  responsible independent living by preventing the relapse of chemically  dependent homeless persons through housing and substance abuse  treatment so they can work and live without the havoc and chaos  caused by addiciton and homelessness.

Our Philosophy

“A trust and understanding must be built between the residents  and the staff, based on mutual  respect and understanding.  Once these initial relationships  have been established, the  resident can proceed with a  certain amount of confidence  and enthusiasm into a full recovery program. He now has a set of  values and a frame of reference from which to work. His personal  growth will continue along with the recovery process and will allow  the individual to function in society in a meaningful and responsible  manner.”                                                      Godfrey Kobets - Founder

Our Vision

In recovery, a “sense of community” must be established for the  therapeutic process to continue.  Our vision is to extend our  continuum of after-care services for clients by creating feelings of  belonging and connections to each other.  In a cohesive manner, we  will facilitate a “ripple effect” keeping them engaged in the therapeutic process as role models for the benefit of the whole commutnity.

You Can Make A Difference!
