Phase I. Establish Community Outreach Programs
UMI will establish relationships with individuals, institutions, associations, governments, corporations, organizations, through its community outreach programs. Working together in our community outreach programs will establish the working relationships and partnerships needed before moving to Phase II.
Phase II. Establish New Organizational Structure
UMI will work to solve the problems associated with the administrative management and coordination of interrelated programs and services offered by individuals, institutions, associations, governments, corporations, organizations, and foundations in the fight against human bondage, suffering, and poverty. UMI will work to eliminate fragmented, overlapping and duplicated services.
Problem 1 Fragmented, Overlapping and Duplicated Services
UMI has developed an organizational structure that allows individuals, institutions, associations, governments, corporations (for profit and non-profit), organizations (religious and non-religious), and foundations to work together, but separately to accomplish the goals and missions set in Phases I -IV See "Our Organization" in the about section of this website.
UMI will target recipients who suffer because of their history, mind, body, spirit, finances, family or future—suffering that has taken away their ability to be productive members of society. Our recipients will include senior citizens, children, the mentally and physically challenged, the homeless, alcohol and drug addicts, the unemployed, prisoners and all others that have been outcast and live in human bondage, suffering, and poverty.
UMI will first identify all recipients who are currently applying for healthcare, education, housing, transportation, financial, products and services from UMI an its partners. The UMI application process will be a requirement for all recipients applying for or recipients who wish to continue receiving our service providers’ products and services. The UMI recipient application process will be holistic and will include copies, photos, fingerprints, birth certificate, immigration documents, Green Card, Social Security card, diplomas, certificates, a Criminal Background check, employment history, credit history, EBT card, MVR, driving history, and more. UMI will use a data base program to store the information and make the information available via an extranet to our partners and service providers. . The system will also record information concerning the needs of the applicant in health, education, housing, transportation, finances, products, and services.
This secure sign in will allow only our partners to view the page of the person requesting their products or services. Medical records, both mental and physical, will only be available to state-licensed professional partners. Our partners, (Service Providers), will include individuals, institutions, associations, governments, corporations, organizations, and foundations.
The identification process will take place at UMI's Resources Desk located at 2601 Cross Country Drive, Building B, Columbus, Georgia 31906 and at other UMI intake centers geographically placed to serve recipients and partners best throughout our community. The current recipients and future recipients will be issued a UMI photo ID card. The UMI ID card will have a barcode on the back, and when scanned will give the service provider a quick positive ID and instant access to the data base with an activity record of the history of products and services the recipient has already received. The service provider who is being requested to provide products and services will use their smart cell phone or card scanner to scan the barcode on the back of the UMI recipient card, will be taken to the database via internet, and will enter through the UMI extranet. When service providers are connected to the UMI database, they will be able to make positive identifications for persons asking for assistance and to view most recent products and/or services received from other service providers.
UMI will work to eliminate recipient, vendor and service provider fraud and overlapping, fragmented, or duplicated services.
Phase III. Establish UMI Human Restoration & Training Center
Problem 2. Addictions, Homelessness, Prison & Jail Recidivism
UMI will address all forms of addictions. It will address the high rate of recidivism for prisoners being released from jails, prisons, mental health facilities, emergency rooms, hospitals, shelters. Finally, it will address unemployment lines by establishing a Unity Ministry International’s Human Restoration and Training Center. The center will deliver an 8-week restoration and training program to restore human beings vertically to God and horizontally to humankind. This will be a Center that will begin the restoration process in all seven areas of the human soul (history, mind, body, spirit, finances, family and future), both in the natural and spiritual.
Our program will be a residential program; however, certain parts of our program may be taken on a non-residential bases. Each day is a structured as 16 hours of restoration and training activities and eight hours of sleep, seven days per week. Family visitation will be allowed for one hour each day along with one hour each day for outside professional visitation. There will be 49 hours of clinical examinations conducted in the first week, and 28 hours will be scheduled during the first week for the distribution of health products and services.
There are 294 hours of classroom instruction for the horizontal training and 196 hours of classroom instruction for vertical training. Each hour of instructions consist of 50 minutes of training and a 10-minute break. Three hours each day has been scheduled for three one-hour meal breaks: breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Week 1-Examinations of all health areas
Week 2-Legal knowledge and assistance
Week 3-Mental Health and counseling
Week 4-Physical Health and exercise
Week 5-Spirt Health and controlling emotions
Week 6-Family Health and Social interactions
Week 7-Financial Health and income opportunities
Week 8-Future Health and planning
The UMI Human Restoration and Training Center will be tuition-based and will seek grants, student loans, scholarships, and funds from all third party payers with a stake in the student. When no funds are provided, UMI will grant scholarships and student loans to as many students as possible in an amount necessary to sustain the Center’s continued operation.
Phase IV. Create New Training Centers and Gainful Employment
Problem 3 Lack of Gainful Employment Opportunities
UMI will address the lack of gainful employment for those who are returning to society after being in bondage. UMI will create jobs for our student graduates coming out of our Human Restoration and Training Center. UMI will accomplish new job creation by establishing six additional Restoration and Training Centers: Education Restoration and Training Center, Housing Restoration and Training Center, Transportation Restoration and Training, Financial Restoration and Training Center, Product Restoration and Training Center, and Services Restoration and Training Centers. The job skills taught will be in health services, education, housing, transportation, finance, products, and services.
For example, in our Housing Restoration and Training Center, we will take an old house and restore it while at the same time providing classroom and hands-on training in the areas of carpentry, masonry, roofing, plumbing, electrical, and more.
