OUR SERVICES AND PROGRAMS


My name is Michael Williams and I did 5 years in prison. Then, I went to a halfway house for 10 months, got my apartment and was released. I was out for a month and started drinking. It wasn’t long until my PO found me drunk, so he put my in a rehab. That is where I was introduced to The Program. The Program gave me a Mentor named Kenny. Kenny introduced me to an AA meeting – that is where I learned that I was an alcoholic. With the help of my Mentor, Kenny, and The Program, I learned that I can live life without alcohol. I got a sponsor and kept going to meetings. And, with the help of my Mentor and my sponsor, I’m 14 months clean and I never felt this good in my entire life. If you are getting started with recovery, I recommend The Program. It is a wonderful program to start your life over again.

I have been coming to The ProgramĀ for almost a year. Working with The Program has been a good experience. The Program helped me find a good place to live. When they started paying my rent, I was able to catch up bills, back payments and save money. I was able to buy a car with the money I saved. The financial literacy classes are helpful, too. It helped me learn to manage my money and save even more. I still use the budget sheets they gave us at home. Working with The Program has been great and can be life changing, as long as you use the help right.
