Being a Sunhouse Warrior became part of my life when I almost self-sabottaged to death. Mr. & Mrs. Rimmer were THERE to really listen to me, for hours sometimes at night when I couldn't stand myself. Other than crisis staff, and they are not, who does that??? These people who are committed to what Sunhouse is about, being human with our flaws and our fabulousness. Being real people means there are days when we are happy, lost, losers and survivors! I cannot ask you enough times to learn about what Sunhouse is about, what the people with Sunhouse gives back to us and to others. #SunhouseWarriors4Life

Sunhouse provides exceptional educational curriculum AND genuine support to its students. Sunhouse owners also give back to their community. Psshhht, have you laid your eyes on Ms. Rimmer's grillin's?! Amen, no joke. Personally, I have volunteered with Sunhouse. This experience created great relationships and empowered me to better apply my degree to my life goals. Get associated with Sunhouse and the powerful people who live REAL every day.

My son is an addict and me being his mom was sinking right down with him. Sunhouse enabled me to learn the tools I needed to see things in a healthier way. Now it didn't happen overnight but Sunhouse has been there the entire ride. I can call or text anytime or email and get a response back that day. Their " Ownership" program has helped my son as well. It's a lifestyle change and sometimes I might slip back but Sunhouse always is there to encourage me to get back up!!
