The History

Joe's Place, Clifton's transitional living program, offers an additional component to men who have demonstrated the ability to live by Clifton's guidelines and are making positive progress in achieving their goals.  A guest who is admitted into Joe's Place can stay in the program for up to 2 years.  During this time, they receive intensive counseling in life skills management such as budgeting, job skills training, and relationship building.  
Joe's Place is named for Joe Coppage, a member of the Lake Claire community back in the 1970s-80s who was homeless.  Joe was a very sweet man whose standard answer when asked if he needed anything was simply, "Please pray for me."
