I had no idea there was such a place as TWH to help women get back on their feet. I had been struggling for years with substance abuse, not being able to keep a job for very long, I ruined all my relationships and was even cut off from my family. At TWH I was taught about addiction and how I can actually enjoy life without the drugs. I learned that I couldn't keep running from my feelings, and how I am "allright" with feelings today. I still continue to learn about myself and my addiction. Today and everyday I thank God for TWH, they gave me my life back, but even better than I've ever known. I've got 2 years and 11 months of sobriety- this is a miracle in itself! I'll always be grateful for TWH and all the counselors, volunteers, interns etc. They are the ones that saved my life.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I was on a downward spiral of self destruction the last few months before coming to TWH. I really doubt that I would be alive today without going through TWH program.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Just make it more accessible to the women in need. Let all the rehabilitation places know that there's this great place out there that women can go to right out of rehab, that will forever change their lives for the better.

The Women's Home literally saved my life. I was 8months sober when I got to the Women's Home and I had only scatched the surface of all the issues and baggage I had carried around for years and year. I couldn't stay sober, in and out of Jail and treatment programs. TWH afforded me the opportunity to heal. Through hours of therapy, classes and lectures I was able to do a real "house cleaning" The safe environment and support from my peers and staff allowed me to share honestly without feeling bad about my experiences. I am forever grateful to them. Today I am comingup on 3 years clean, held a job for over 1 1/2 years and received 2 promotions. My life will never be the same and for that I am truly blessed and grateful.

I was at TWH for 13 months and it has definitely changed my life for the better. It is one of the best decisions that I have ever made and thanks to ernestly seeking for a new way of living and all the support that I received there, all my decisions are good today. I successfully completed the program there and now have my own apartment and a great job with potential for much growth. I still get services from TWH. I have been gone from there for 10 months, now and still meet with my individual therapist and my spiritual mentor. I have such a good life today. I am ever so grateful for TWH and pray that other ladies will take advantage of the opportunity that is offered, with such dignity, integrity and on and on. I can't say enought good things about this program. I am a very special person, today.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

This is a dream come true. Women are treated like the ladies that they trully are. When you leave you feel like the person that you were meant to be. And, it dosen' stop.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I don't know of anything that I would change. We all have ideas and they can be expressed. I needed the change and I am changed.
