When I arrived at this program I thought it would be the normal drug/alcohol program. I was in for a huge surprise. Ms. Johnnie and her staff are all volunteering to help us change our lives. Ms. Johnnie in particular, even though she is the one who started the program, makes sure that she gets to know you and that you have her ear when you really need to. She sees things in people that they don't even see in themselves. She give unconditionally love to us and to people on the street. She provides a beautiful home for us and she gives her all to keep things going. The program staff also volunteer their time and we have counselors, therapists, social workers, and group leaders that work with us on a daily basis. This program is a light to this community which has a lot of darkness. We are right in the middle of drug sales, prostitution and violence. However, the people on the street respect her and do not hang around the doors. Most of the women that graduate from the program are still clean and sober. They are now homeowners, graduates from college and graduate school .
