In 2007 Project Rescue established an in-house addiction recovery program with 2 apartment buildings. At this time we also became a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation registered with the IRS (EIN #41-2247638). Ronnie Crocker was the President, Jeanie Crocker was the Vice President and Kim Johnson was the Secretary. Today, 10 years later, we have much more help and support!
In 2011, Project Rescue moved to Decatur, Alabama and the Crockers joined forces with the Baggetts.
In addition to our non-profit 501(c)3 IRS (EIN #41-2247638) status, in 2011, Project Rescue Inc. became a non-profit corporation registered in the state of Alabama (Entity ID # 003-701).
Project Rescue Inc. is located at 179 Cave Spring Road, Decatur, Alabama. Our phone number is 256-616-1522.
We have 13 Board of Directors: Charles Baggett (Chairman), Grant Azbel, Siegfried Bill, William Dean, Cecil Green, Johnny Hope, Tom Irwin, Keith Rigoni, Ray Solley, Dustin Sutton, Alan Watkins, and Doyle Whitlow.
Our Board of Directors have appointed and authorized an Executive Committee (Joe Drake, Cecil Green and Ray Solley) to oversee the daily operation of the Project Rescue program, property and facilities.
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 Executive Committee, Ray Solley, Joe Drake and Cecil Green make the decisions regarding our finances, facilities, vehicles, and other business matters. They meet bi-weekly with Charles Baggett , Ronnie Crocker and Jeanie Crocker, to discuss financial matters, construction projects, maintenance matters, and the program members.
Charles Baggett (on left) served as the chaplain of Limestone Correctional, the largest prison in Alabama, for over 20 years.
Martha & Charles are co-servants at Project Rescue.
Ronnie Crocker spent 15 year of his life addicted to drugs. He has ministered to addicts and alcoholics for 29 years.
Ronnie & Jeanie serve side by side in this mission field in our own backyard!
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. He also works on intake when a new member arrives. Charles also teaches classes and meets 1-on-1 with our members.
Charles and Martha manage our Food Program and the cafeteria.
Ronnie serves as the Program Manager. Jeanie serves as our Bookkeeper, etc.
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.
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 is a 6-month graduate of Project Rescue.
Roger meets 1-on-1 with 6 men every day, Monday thru Friday.
