Addiction Recovery in Rice Lake, Wisconsin

(Email Doris Jasperson to get started helping in any of these ways.)

 

Food: Facilitate community and growth among participants at The Gap by supplying a meal for 12-14 people. If you live in the Rice Lake area, home-cooked meals are greatly appreciated. If you’re not nearby, you can purchase gift cards to Jimmy John’s, Subway, Old Southern Barbeque Smokehouse, or Domino’s Pizza.

 

Office Assistance: If you love to organize email lists and make mailing labels and deal with other administrative-related work, The Gap could use your help! 

 

Social Media Manager: Lend your creativity and social media savvy to help this ministry. 

 

Cleaning: Help maintain the welcoming, safe space that The Gap offers to those recovering from addiction, by watering the plants and cleaning the floors, kitchen, bathrooms, stairs, and front porch.

 

Supplies: With the number of people benefitting from programming at The Gap, they can always use paper supplies such as paper towels, paper plates, tissues, and toilet paper.

 

Participate: If you are currently in recovery and looking for support and accountability in the Rice Lake area, check out their Facebook page, or just show up:

  • Overcomers Outreach – Fridays at 10:00am (A Christ-centered 12-step group for those addicted to drugs and/or alcohol)
  • ReGroup – Wednesdays from 6:00pm-8:00pm (Support for those who are committed to building healthy relationships and need a safe place for spiritual and emotional growth. Supper at 6pm, followed by a short video, Bible study, and a lively discussion.)

Pray. We believe that one of the powerful ways that God lets us take part in His Kingdom is through prayer; it can heal, comfort, and change lives. Go to our Prayer Board for specific requests.

 

Give. Doris and Dave Jasperson serve in a support-raising role – which means they depend on generous donations to be able to do their ministry. Give to Doris and Dave Jasperson here.

 

 

 

Homeless Youth

Join. One place already reaching the homeless population is the Youth Empowerment Shelter in The Dalles, Oregon. We’re currently looking for a Program Development Specialist and an Executive Director for the shelter.

 

Create your own. But if you live far from Rice Lake or The Dalles and your heart is still sensing the call to meet the needs of those struggling with addiction or the homeless in your own community, fill out our Initial Questionnaire and share your dream with us.
