I had been useing and drinking most of my life and had no idea what being sober was or in a relationship that wasn;t abusive in one form or another. I went into the SEEDs program at the age of 40 and needed to learn how to live in my own skin and thanks to the program I have celebrated 7 years clean and sober and have learne dwhat healthy relationships are. I got a college degree in business and plan on opening my own business soon I have dreams that are coming true all the time. They saved my life.

I am a victim of Domestic Violance and a resident at one of the two recovery homes run by NATN. In the year that I have been with NATN I have become more self-sufficient and have gotten a solid foundation for life long recovery from addiction. I know who I am today and have a good life. I am happy and healthy and a year ago never dreamed I would be where I am today. I work with the other women in the house and am succeeding with life.

I Actively seek goods and services to contribute to the homes and lives of the women involved in the Seeds program. Call on local community business such as dentist, doctors, alternative health companies that host classes and workshops for supporting women’s needs. I generate extras that women would enjoy. Seek cash donations and events for the Cup O Karma coffee shop. Creating an up and coming conference for women at ASU in Arizons. I love the purpose of NATN and being active in that purpose to enhance the lives of these women.

Currently we are working with Park & Co. a generous marketing firm. Park and Co is donating their services as a web presense development company to provide a clear website, blogging for a select few to tell their stories. Helping others to find a new way.

I am a professional who has worked in the substance abuse and domestic violence fields for over twenty years. I was a peripheral support and consultant since NATN’s conception and inception. I have participated along side other professionals and experts from NATN in speakings, trainings and workshops, before audiences of a modest few individuals and upwards to hundreds of participants. In each and every case NATN has liked to make the experience personal and meaningful. NATN operates the SEEDs program, which provides direct services to women and children. Over the years of interacting with SEEDs the most remarkable aspect has been the vision and optimism that the program operates under. Time and time again I have been at planning meetings and heard “we are going to do so-and-so and we are going to do it such-and-such way” and someone (at times even myself) would chime in “no you can’t do that, nobody has ever done that” or “that’s not how its done (in these kind of programs, or our field)” . Only to hear the response “well, we ARE going to do it and that’s how we’re going to do it”. And low and behold, to everyone’s astonishment, time after time it’s a success! Such is the power of positive and forward thinking.

Most astonishing is the cost-benefit ratio as it relates to NATN and the SEEDs Program. The program has been built on word of mouth marketing. On a shoestring budget I have witnessed trainings having reached thousands. With direct services I have witnessed individuals lives turned around in meaningful and long-lasting ways with investments of a few thousand dollars in services. I have watched women come to the program released from jail and earn college degree’s, move from homelessness to self-sufficiency, become entrepreneurs, and become empowered in ways far to numerous to list here (with 255 words). The success stories are many.
