Giving Back

At Transformational Living Ministries, we strive to bring education and awareness about the stigma that addiction carries.  Being of service in the community shows that we are much more than addicts and alcoholics.  We are people in recovery.  We are sons, daughters, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, and so much more. 


Our staff and residents take part in volunteering at other non-profits and community action/improvement projects. 

Transformational Living Ministries (TLM) is a 501c3 Christian-based recovery home currently for men and women in Columbus, Indiana. We use a combination of 12-step recovery and accountability to give our residents an opportunity to live productive, substance-free lives. We are focused on helping the Residents Encounter Christ community and others transition back into society with solution-based thinking, communication, and coping skills, empowering them to be productive members of society. 

  • A positive, safe, recovery-focused community based on abstinence with a zero tolerance for substance abuse

  • Life skill development and help finding gainful employment
