As part of our men's long-term recovery program, residents provide a valuable service to the community by recycling thousands of tons of wood annually.  Through the program, men gain job experience and a small financial allowance as they work to:

  • Repair reusable pallets
  • Dismantle pallets for parts
  • Build pallets
  • Grind unusable material for landscaping mulch

This work program also gives the participants the opportunity to:

  • Contribute to ministry while helping the environment
  • Learn marketable job skills
  • Enhance self-esteem
  • Develop a work ethic
  • Obtain life skills

You can help!

You can help support the men in the long-term recovery program by purchasing your wood mulch from Victory Acres.

Victory Acres offers premium quality landscape mulch made from 100% recycled wood. Available in the natural look, it makes the perfect complement for any lawn, garden, or landscaping need. This mulch is made from recycled wood and decomposes much slower than traditional bark mulches. The rich natural color means no additional chemicals are added to the soil, which makes for less frequent re-mulching and a more permanent landscape.

  • Helps retain soil moisture and retard weed growth
  • Less re-mulching can save money and prevent damage
  • Also may be used for livestock bedding
  • Long lasting
  • Consistent mulch quality

The purchase of this recycled product helps provide food, clothing, shelter, and recovery programs for the impoverished and at-risk in our community. Victory Acres premium quality landscape mulch is available in bulk or easy to handle bags.
