Holistic Approach

The Blessing Way is unique to many other reentry organizations because we offer wrap-around services and include spirituality as a key part of our program offerings.

Our name, "The Blessing Way", was chosen for its many spiritual connections. This Blessing Way is a traditional Native American healing ceremony used at a turning point in a person's life to restore harmony with self, others, and the Creator. Members of the community gather to give the person prayers and blessings as a sign of spiritual strength for the "way" and that is why the ceremony is called "the blessing way". Today, the ritual is most commonly used for preparing pregnant women for birth but in ancient times it was also used to reintegrate a community member who had strayed away. We chose the name for its symbolic association to our own efforts to provide spiritual support to those being reintegrated into our communities.

We believe that our participants need guidance and support in many different parts of their lives. If any of the parts are missing, the chances of reentering successfully are lessened. That is why we offer Transitional Housing, Job Assistance, Case Management, Emergency Needs, Mentoring, Life Skills education, and Spirituality.

We are a faith-based but nondenominational agency rooted in a broad understanding of spirituality. The Blessing Way offers meditation as a spiritual practice because it offers relaxation and the opportunity to feed the spirit in a calm, open, supportive circle. We do not require our participants to practice a specific religion or faith; however, many of our staff participate in specific religions or denominations in their personal lives. We encourage spiritual development among our participants because we believe that it plays a major role in the positive behaviors and attitudes which are necessary for successful reentry and sustained recovery. Some of these include: honesty, trust of others, humility, self-respect, self-reliance, respect for others, generosity, self-forgiveness, boundary-setting, forgiveness of others, inner peace, accountability for one's actions, freedom from inner pain, gratitude, and the ability to confront barriers in life in a positive and nonviolent manner.
