Amethyst Place made it possible for me to have my daughter back and to get my life back on track. I was able to get by certified nurses aide certificate and get my high-set and become stronger in my recovery! I am who I am and wear that today because of this place!
Amethyst Place truly saves my life! Without them I wouldn’t have had the resources to get my children back, go back to college, and learn how to be a productive member of society. The community I had with the other Moms was out of this world too, we always had someone around that could support us and be there when we needed it. Even though I am a graduate of Amethyst, I still am connected with them and know they will always be there for me if I need it!
