I was one day from being homeless my family wanted nothing to do with me I had an alcohol and drug problem, I called lions and they sent people down to pick me up from the shore and drive me an hour back to lions. I stayed in the domiciliary for one year and then I was moved over to community hope and in community hope that help that the lion the domiciliary started continued. Anthony oaks the director of the program was an amazing man between the veterans services and community Hope services they saved my life, they gave me my respect back they got me clean and sober I no longer have the need for alcohol drugs.

I was diagnosed with depression at the age of 16 and also have a physical disability. i came from a loving family but as I watched friends and classmates move on ton their own apartments, i wanted that kind of independence for myself. So in 1994, I started doing research & with the help of my therapist found Community Hope.
