Our Mission:

Arise & Shine Transitional Living exists to provide housing and support for women (and their children) who are successful graduates of sobriety, addiction, and anger management programs.

 

 
 
 

Addiction recovery programs are designed to give short-term, acute recovery care. They are typically six to nine months long. Women in these programs get clean, but they are not yet stable. They do not have the life skills, community support, or spiritual maturity to push through the next bump in the road without falling into old destructive habits. From the recovery facility, these vulnerable women are pushed back out onto the streets to fend for themselves. But they are not ready.

Arise & Shine Transitional Living fills the gap in this system. We provide a safety net and a jumping off point for young women to rebuild their lives.

Randy and Terri Ponce de Leon, volunteer chaplains at multiple addiction recovery centers in Southern California, founded Arise & Shine to fill the gap in the addiction recovery system.

People need a family to count on, so they can "Grow and Go."

 
 
 

Arise & Shine provides transitional housing to young women in need. We give them the family they have never had, and we teach them how to manage their life with Christian values and principles. In the two years women live at Arise & Shine, they will learn how to manage their finances, how to build healthy relationships, and most importantly, how to honor God with their life. They will grow and go. When they leave here, they will have the skills, maturity, and spiritual foundation required for re-launching their life.

Arise & Shine creates the family these women have never had. They hold each other up in love and grace. They learn how to create healthy relationships with others, with themselves, and with God.
