WeCan is a network of Christ-centered residential transformation ministries helping men and women who struggle with drug and alcohol addiction. The programs involve 6 months in Phase I with classes 3 days a week, community service 2 days a week and weekend church activities. In Phase II of the programs, the residents get a job, continue classes and transition back into society.
