Two friends who are dissatisfied with their jobs decide to join the army for a bit of fun.

"An anarchic slob movie, a celebration of all that is irreverent, reckless, foolhardy, undisciplined, and occasionally scatological. It's a lot of fun." Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

Tonight's nonprofit recipient is Recovery Mentor Program.

In 1999, Central City Concern established the Recovery Mentor Program to give recovering addicts someone to turn to; someone who has traveled the road to recovery and succeeded.

Clients are matched with individual mentors who literally take them by the hand to introduce them to drug-free housing and accompanies them to their first support group meeting. Mentors check in with clients daily, making sure they maintain their commitment to a regimen of intensive outpatient medical, chemical dependency and mental health treatment. The longer a person continues with outpatient treatment, the greater the chance of long-term sobriety.

The Recovery Mentor Program provides encouragement and a strong social network. It is a program in which individuals are held accountable for their successes, as well as for their digressions.

With a mentor’s help, clients develop new relationships with others in recovery, gradually learning a new way of life. With their mentor’s guidance, they learn that transformation is possible.

Clinton Street Resistance - Every Monday Clinton Street Theater in collaboration with Dot's Cafe, Lucky Horseshoe Lounge, La Moule, Atlas Pizza, Clinton St Pub, Clinton St Theater, People's Food Co-op and Off the Waffle will be showing a free movie with all donations going to support a different weekly non-profit.
