“I go to recovery group and Bible Study. It’s given me hope,” she tells us. “This is my first time being in a close relationship with God. He came to me when I was down and didn’t know my way. Ever since, I’ve become closer to God. I’ve seen more opportunities for myself.”
Looking ahead, Eileen plans to return to school and pursue a career in addiction counseling, with a focus on trauma and domestic violence.
From personal experience, she knows the value of being in a caring environment and speaking with people who understand the challenges of addiction and homelessness. “At Montana Rescue Mission, they accept everyone for who they are,” she says. “I’m very grateful for everything they’ve done for me.”
