A collection of stories from client about their lives.
I’m More than An Addict
Hi, I’m Kenneth. My mother supported us, while all my father did was drink. As I got older, peer pressure stopped me from going to school. Instead, I started drinking and smoking at 15.
I'm Never Turning Back to Drugs
Hi, I’m Jay. I felt very sick and tired of everything. When my friend saw me, he told me I needed to get myself together. I joined rehab and slowly moved away from heroin thanks to the Mission's help.
I Was a Prisoner of Drugs
Hi, I'm Tommy. I’ve been battling many years of addiction since I was in my 20s. When I got a blood infection from addiction, I was stuck in the hospital. Everything caught up with me. I was homeless without a job and without a family.
I Moved Without a Destination in Mind
Hi, I’m Kaan, I’ve been homeless for many years. I’ve moved from place to place, staying in hotels, sleeping in bus terminals, and being on the streets.
The Mission Brought Light into My Life
Hi, I’m Larry, it’s my second time at the Mission. I thought no one would remember me after so many years, but the Mission staff welcomed me back. They remembered me for who I am and gave me a place to stay when I needed it the most.
The Mission Restored Me Financially and Emotionally
Hi, I'm Alfonso, it has been 11 years since I’ve been sober. I am now back on my feet and ready for a new life in Tennessee in the next month.
The Mission Truly Sees the Potential in Us
Hi, I’m Joaquin, I’m doing better financially and studying to become an interpreter, thanks to the Mission’s guidance.
The Mission Saved Me from Living on the Streets
Hi, I’m Jaime. At the Mission, I found happiness, friends, a job, and so much more. Now my life is better because I have been doing the right things, staying out of drugs, and behaving well.
The Mission is a Safe and Trusting Place
I came back to the Mission after 2 years of trying and failing to stay sober. During those years, I lived on the Cape, had a job, a place to live and friends who would intervene when I relapsed. But my recovery never lasted very long.
I Will Stay Determined to Be a Better Person
Hi, I am Mike and I am an alcoholic. I am not a nice drunk and missing my father’s funeral led me into deep guilt and depression.
I Never Thought I'd be a Drug Addict
Hi. I’m Walter. Growing up, I wanted to be a boxer or a Navy Seal. I never thought I would be a drug addict instead.
Building Confidence Like Never Before
I’m Tricia. When I really needed help, I felt in my heart that the Mission was a good place for me. Now I have the confidence in myself that I’ve never had before.
