Then I said to them, “You see the bad situation we are in, that Jerusalem is desolate and its gates burned by fire. Come, let us rebuild the wall of Jerusalem so that we will no longer be a reproach.” -Nehemiah 2:17

Alumni Fellowship

TMON Alumni Fellowship is the fruit of the MON Discipleship Program. It serves as the Aftercare Brotherhood for all TMON graduates, as well as a source of encouragement and mentorship for the Discipleship Program participants. The group meets weekly as an arena for TMON Graduates to share and express the successes and challenges of living outside the protective wall of the Discipleship Program. The Brotherhood also coordinates recreational activities for TMON graduates that allow them to continue to grow while learning to live and enjoy life and reach their God given potential.

As the men reestablish themselves in society access to capital can be critical to maintaining their trajectory of success. Simply not having bus money can result in losing a job and thus the downward spiral can repeat itself when a $30 bus pass would have avoided upending 9 months of progress. To address this the TMON Alumni have pooled their excess capital into an Emergency Loan Fund (ELF). The ELF has a current balance of $1,000 and has made several loans with no defaults.

The Alumni brotherhood has grown to over 130 men who are embarking on an ambitious project of building a Fellowship (Aftercare) center for the graduates and their families. Junior League, Rotary Club, Fraternities, Professions, etc., all have a lodge, a place where people with shared experiences and interest gather to support their cause or agenda. The alumni of a rehab facility has nowhere to go but an AA/NA/Al Anon meeting that typically rotates its temporary location and has inconsistent participation with little ongoing community structure.

Imagine having a beautiful place of community that you had to earn through successful completion of a recovery program. A place of likeminded and experienced people that all share the same purpose…sobriety and restoration to their God-given potential! This could help revolutionize the recovery community. The TMON Harrell Fellowship (Aftercare) Center would be the first of its kind in the U.S.
