A spiritual foundation is provided and acts as a principal agent for constant encouragement and progressive change. Participants must show their commitment by attending group meetings, one-on-one counseling, and mentoring workshops. Over a period of time, through the dedicated support of Back To Basics staff and volunteers, each individual learns the necessary characteristics and elements required to obtain and sustain their own household.
