Rounding The Bases is a recovery oriented program, the core of which centers around training, education, employment, and housing. The name is symbolic of a runner, the client, attempting to score. The bases symbolize the steps in the process to becoming a productive member of society.

The target population is adult persons age 18 plus, who are any or all of the following: low income, homeless, ex-offenders, recovering addicts, unemployable, physically or mentally challenged and of any race, creed, religion, ethnic background, gender, or sexual orientation.

I believe this is a new, heretofore untried model for a recovery program. I see the feasibility of addressing the hindrances to ongoing recovery; such as, unemployability due to criminal background, lack of experience at acquiring and using life skills, lack of a living wage, and lack of affordable housing at the onset of the recovery process. These issues if not immediately addressed serve as a major deterant to ongoing recovery. Furthermore, to date, mental illness, addiction, incarceration, and homelessness, have been addressed as isolated occurances. In reality, usually, these issues present in some combination.
