I got to know Shields through a documentary film project exploring the people and the benefits of their program model. The incredible stories of hope and strength from the group was amazing. Extreme obstacles of addiction and abuse did not keep these folks from returning to the work place and community with a new mission.

Many people including families give up on those who struggle with addictions but not SHIELDS. What a wonderful organization who cares.
