I was helped while serving some time in a San Diego County Jail in 1995. Reverand Carmen helped pray me through a very tough time in my life. I had been getting in trouble since I was 12 years old as I was an addict at a very young age. I was in and out of juvinile halls, the Youth Authority and jails until I was 36 years old. Welcome Home showed me another way of life through the love of God and helped me learn to love my self. I am now able to help other women who are hurting the same way I had been hurting getting involved in Welcome Home. It's like a ripple in a pond. Because these women have a resource to break that chain, whole families are changed. God works that way you know. He breaks that cycle of addiction and restores families. That is His favorite thing to do.

Welcome Home Ministries helped empower me with its great support and Christ like love and dedication. I first learned about Welcome Home Ministries when I went to jail for the first, of several times, in my life. Other women in my dorm were talking about a mentor, Donna Nickel, saying she had helped them by just being there listening and providing support in such a sad time of their life. I really needed someone to talk to and someone who could give me a hand up. I put my name on a list asking for Donna to contact me, very soon after that Donna came and met with me and has never left my side. Unfortunately, after that first meeting with Donna I returned to jail and then went to prison, but Donna was faithful to believe in me when I couldn’t believe in myself. I now have 2 years 4 months free from drugs and crime. Welcome Home Ministries plays a MAJOR part in my support group!!
