Women’s Home: the almost halfway update

Well, it’s a new year, and that’s as good a time as any for a women’s home update!

At time of writing, we’re approaching half of our stage 1 goal (thanks to everyone who has supported the campaign!) and contractors are about to start renovations on the future women’s home. As they start rearranging the walls and augmenting the plumbing, our staff are hard at work preparing for intake to start in 2019. It’s an exciting time, if a little breathless.

Throughout this whole process, we’re going to do our best to keep you updated. Expect to see construction photos, staff blogs, and event info on this blog feed.

If you know anyone who might want to learn more, feel free to share! If this women’s sober living home is important to you, why not donate to the campaign to make it happen! Your support and advocacy is the foundation we are building.

Keep an eye out for more soon!

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.

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.
