Before I was able to get into Soaring Heights, I was homeless living outside of the capitol building. Getting into Soaring Heights saved my life. I would have lost my life to addiction. While at Soaring Heights I got a job, and eventually moved into my apartment. I got my cat Lunar back. Upon getting housed through Salem Housing, I’m enrolled in Edgewater Community Garden and on my way back to employment. Sobriety has taken a long time for me, and the only way to do this change is through our Father Jesus Christ!
