To operate an effective addiction recovery program, the staff must be a good mixture of former addicts and those who have never been addicted to drugs or alcohol. At Project Rescue, we enjoy this good mixture! All of our ministers who interact with the program members understand the mind of an addict, and they know all the games they play. Our business managers have vast experience in the business world.
Our Management Team, Ray Solley, Joe Drake and Cecil Green make the decisions regarding our finances, facilities, vehicles, and other business matters. They are all members of the Beltline church of Christ. The Management Team meets bi-weekly with Charles Baggett , Ronnie Crocker and Jeanie Crocker, to discuss financial matters, construction projects, maintenance matters, and the program members.
The Baggetts and Crockers have labored tirelessly for years to help the downtrodden and those struggling under the burden of addictions. In 2009 and 2010, Charles & Martha made several trips to Waycross, Georgia, to visit Ronnie & Jeanie at Project Rescue. The next year (January/2011), the Baggetts and Crockers joined forces to establish Project Rescue in Priceville, Alabama.
Charles now serves as the Chairman Of The Board Of Directors and Ronnie serves as the Program Manager.
Jeanie Crocker serves as the Project Rescue bookkeeper. In addition to her general bookkeeping duties, Jeanie also serves as the personal bookkeeper for the program members. New Project Rescue members are not allowed to have cash in their possession. They are required to turn their paychecks over to Project Rescue. Jeanie records each deposit. Their wants and needs are purchased for them. Their bills are paid out of their Project Rescue account. Jeanie carries out the enormous daily task of recording each transaction for each man! Jeanie and Kim also enjoy the task of "mothering the men!" Birthdays are celebrated every month. Holiday events are also carried out by Jeanie and Kim.
Kim Johnson is a Registered Nurse.
She dispenses medicine to the men as prescribed. She also gives medical advice to the men.
Kim also helps Jeanie with interior decorating and with 'mothering' the men!
Kim has a bachelor’s Degree in Bible from Freed-Hardeman University.
Jason Cagle serves as our Night Manager.
He lives onsite right next to the dorm. The dorm is where our new members reside. Jason stays out among the men until about 10pm. He works hard to keep drugs and alcohol off of our property. Jason is also a great encourager. He and Beau take the members shopping on Tuesday nights. Jason is a 1-year graduate of Project Rescue. He has lived onsite for about 4 years!
Beau Nelson serves as our Day Manager.
As Day Manager, Beau has a more difficult task than an Air Traffic Controller. His responsibility is organizing the day for 19 program members. He has to get them to their 1-on-1 sessions, classes, doctors appointments, job interviews, to and from work, and more. It has been compared to something like "herding cats.!" Beau also serves as our Maintenance Man. He is a 1-year graduate of Project Rescue.
Roger Jackson serves as our Bible Teacher. He teaches the men Basic Hermeneutics (how to study the Bible). Roger is a 6-month graduate of Project Rescue.
