Brian (left) and Robert (right) live in an Another Chance House Transitional Home. The men share how this program helps them continue their progress and dream about their future:
“Moving from the Main House to Transition is like taking off the training wheels. We don’t have the same restrictions we had – the leash is loosened if you will – but we still have the support we need from staff, recovery programs, and one another,” says Robert.
Brian feels blessed to have hope for his future again, “I was a broken man when I got here. I’m starting to see the blessings of sobriety and I’m so grateful that Another Chance House exists!”
Both men feel that transitional living is preparing them for the future. Keeping their home neat and tidy is important to them. Paying rent and learning to budget their income from the full-time jobs is helping to prepare them for self-sufficiency. Robert is working on reinstating his driver’s license, a very important next step. Brian says restored relationships with his family are also key to his recovery and he’s looking forward to returning to a more normal way of life.
Another Chance House donors make progress possible for Brian and Robert!
