I would just like to let everyone kknow what this organization has done for me and my family. I moved into their housing program in may of 2008 into their family willows building, it was built for women, and women with children who are facing issues with addiction and/or trauma. Not only did they give me and my family a place to call home, they providied me with a treatment cooridinater, therapist, intensive outpatient program and many groups along with childcare. They also opened The family place therapeutic pre-school for three and four year old children whose parents are participants in fit programming, my youngest daughter has been in the pre-school for two years and loves it, she is going to kindergarten in September and I willl miss the preschool and the staff dearly. They have done so much for my daughter and have given her oppurtunityies that I could never have afforded to give her right now. This program has saved my life and because of them I went from being a homless drug addicted parent to being clean and sober for over four years and I am one year away from my bachelor's degree in human services. I no longer live in their program, I have since graduated successfully in April of 2012, and live in the community, but i remain committed to giving back to this wonderful organization and I love everything they stand for., so I volunteer as a peer advocate leader and recovery coach for families in transition and remain in close contact with the organization. I truly believe they helped me to go from just barely surviving, to being a productive and functioning member of society. I live each day with so much gratitude for what I have, and I have learned that with the right support nothing is out my reach, They also taught me that it is never to late to turn my life around regardless of the mistakes I have made. I can achieve anything I put my mind to and become a better person for myself and my children. I have gained my independance and my self esteem with the help of Families in Transition and one day I only hope I can work for a non-profit such as families in transition and give back all the knowledge I was given to others who feel helpless and hopeless too.
