Bethel House is a residential rehabilitation centre in Whakatane that provides a home to men who might not otherwise find one. Some face issues of long-term unemployment or prison, others battle low educational achievement or substance abuse.
“Our aim is to see men leave Bethel with the skills needed to avoid destructive patterns of behaviour – more aware of, and able to live out, their personal strengths,” said Bethel House Manager, Alan O’Neill.
Residents get to participate in a series of programmes, including a Stopping Violence Programme funded by The Tindall Foundation through its Regional Funding Manager, the Acorn Foundation.
The programme operates on a ten-weekly cycle, with the vision that those who have been through the initial sessions will continue and assist those coming into the programme for the next cycle.
Journalling helps participants to commit to the programme. In his journal, one 18 year-old wrote: “I know it’s my anger that keeps leading me back into the same trouble. I have to learn to control it in the way you have shown me.”
