As a woman living in a life of recovery my spiritual journey into deliverance of my addiction, I was lead to give back to other women that may not have gotten the necessary tools to live a life of recovery. I was lead to an AWESOME program by the name of Metro Atlanta Recovery Residence. The volunteer position I currently perform weekly for the past three (3) years has honestly strengthend my recovery in so many ways. The community atmosphere that MARR has for their recovery programs gives what independent recovery does not, the ability to learn to transition back into life relationships with hands on experience. I have witnessed women become real with themselves, honest, giving and understanding women. I feel that without this experience relapse is an abosolute. Thank God that i was lead to become a volunteer with MARR, and I thank god everyday for a recovery program of this magnitude.

Forever Grateful,
Ingrid J.

Over 15 years ago, I was encouraged by a church friend to volunteer with the Spiritual LIfe program at MARR. Since then, I joyfully spend every Wednesday night with 20-30 men in recovery and experience the miracles of this program first-hand. I have watched men reclaim their lives through the efforts of the talented staff at MARR. the hard work of the clients, one day at a time, and the grace of a higher power whom I choose to call God. I have volunteered for many organizations, but nothing can compare to the rewards of being a part of the MARR family of recovery. This program works!
