I came to the Hope House on October 2, 2016. I had been addicted to drugs and alcohol for 25 years. My life was in complete shambles. My wife left me, my son had been taken by CPS and my oldest son had followed in my footsteps and was also bound by addiction. Never, had I experienced the love of God, until I attended the church service at Living Hope Outreach that October morning. That morning I surrendered my life to the Lord and have been serving him faithfully for 11 months. My relationship with my wife, children, and mother have been fully restored. CPS has given us full custody of our son. Living Hope Outreach and the Hope House has changed my life forever, I now have a purpose and drive to stay clean and sober. My passion is to serve the Lord with all I am.
