This designated agency fund was established to support the work of Brian's Safehouse and Sparrow's Nest. This "building over time" fund will help those with substance use disorders break the bonds of addiction and learn to live free from all chemical substances in a faith-based setting.
"Building over time" is an option all new donors have when establishing a fund at BAF. Only 20% of the start-up costs are required and the organization has additional time to raise the existing funds.
“The purpose of the fund is so the ministry will continue long after the founders are no longer able to be involved. We are excited about this opportunity; we have always relied on the support of the community for this ministry.”
— Leon Brush | Co-founder, Brian’s Safehouse & Sparrow’s Nest
Brian's Safehouse has been operating since 2008 and Sparrow’s Nest since 2016. These establishments are a place where men and women, who are fighting against addiction, can experience the life restoring powers of God in an environment free from the temptations of drugs and alcohol. Both organizations are a 12-month, in-patient program located on closed campuses. The programs are biblically based, acknowledging that complete restoration comes through Jesus Christ. They teach residents emotional, spiritual, and practical life skills while individualized treatment plans address underlying issues as well as focus on the resident's strengths and potential. Both organizations strive to enable residents to re-enter society as responsible, contributing citizens.
“The structure, knowledge, and support I received from Brian's Safehouse completely changed my life. Today I am a successful, driven person whose achievements reflect the work the Safehouse put into me. I am grateful for everything they have done.”
