A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:

Prior to treatment, an individual we served was homeless, unemployed, and had little to no relationship with his children with the likelihood that he would lose his parental rights. His motivation to get sober was minimal due to feeling hopeless about his situation. After entering treatment and then transitioning to Houses of Hope Halfway House, he was given an opportunity to fight for himself and had hope again. During his time at Houses of Hope, he was hired on full-time with a company, had obtained insurance, improved his physical health, redeemed his driving privileges, obtained a car, paid monthly child-support, and was able to begin seeing his children again. After completing treatment, he was able to successfully transition to a 3/4 -way house, maintained what he built at Houses of Hope, and continue to build his relationship with his children.
