New Faces

We have a new face here at the Upper Room! We are proud to welcome Linda Jung-Zimmerman, our new Assistant Director, to the Upper Room Recovery Community.

Linda has always been driven by mission, and that’s why we’re so excited to have her on the team. As a pastoral associate with the Catholic Church, that drive pulled her into direct service ministries. In her 24 years working in direct service nonprofits, that drive pushed her into leadership. As a nonprofit leader and administrator, she cultivated opportunities for women’s leadership.

Holding both a doctorate and a masters degree in ministry, Linda is coming back to ministering in South Bend to continue her mission of providing services and opportunities to those people in our community who need our help.

She’s a perfect fit, if we don’t say so ourselves, to help guide the Upper Room into this new era as we expand into Women’s Services.

We hope you will join us in welcoming Linda into our Community!

For me, I really needed time away from my old environment. I needed a place where people are in recovery and are serious about their recovery, a place where I could fit in and give my newly-found recovery a solid foundation.

Life is so much better. I had no idea the sweet life I could have.

My alcoholism was so out of control and so was my life. I had a loss of trust with people who cared about me. It’s devastating. How do you regain that trust?

I came here because of word of mouth about Upper Room. I’ve known about God most of my life, but I did not KNOW God.

I've learned a lot about myself through this process. My character has changed. It's not easy, but with help, I know I can do it. It is God's will, not mine.

The disease is arrested, not destroyed. Each day you have to decide whether you’re going to live or die – because it will kill you.

When you’re in the midst of addiction, you’re also in the midst of loneliness and isolation. It’s hard to shake off. Your defense mechanisms are like a coat that you put on.
