I was placed in Walden House by the Veterans Administration because they had no other housing available earlier this year. My personal belongings were delivered there by Hope House VA where I previously resided for storage during my stay. When I was discharged and went to collect my belongings after securing a storage locker, my brand new $1400.00 guitar and brand new flat-screen TV were missing/stolen. I am now pursuing recovery of my belongings by first, as required by law, seeking a meeting with the principals of Walden House to ask for my property to either be returned or to receive equal compensation for my missing/stolen property. My alternative to satisfactory resolution of this meeting is to take appropriate legal action which I intend to do if necessary. It is a travesty that an organization like yours employs predators who prey on clients who already have nothing!!

I have seen the amazing and wonderful work that this non-profit has done for my family. They have dedicated and experienced staff that helped a family member when they needed it most. Our family owes everything to Walden House, because without them we probably would have to that family member to their addiction. So after 8 years, we are still active donors and will encourage others to donate to this non-profit, because we know first hand the wonderful services and outcomes they provide.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help change and improve the way of life for many people suffering from addiction.
