Our Dear Friend Joey
Today we bring you the story of our dear friend Joey!
Joey is no stranger to struggles in life. Earlier on he fell into the slippery slope of addiction. If you have ever been in that place, you know how quickly it envelopes you. This was step one to his turning point in life.
Addiction led Joey to another battle he had to fight - incarceration. This, unfortunately though, was the least of his worries. Eventually he ended up losing everything to the this feeling lifestyle. His kids were taken from him. Then he lost his home, then it seeped into his relationships.
Joey was down and out with nothing to lean on, no safe place to call home. The upsetting feelings grew on him and he reached out to his brother.
It took losing everything for Joey to realize that he’s done being caught in this cycle. The momentary escape from reality ended up not being enough.
Joey stuck through with his promise to himself and his kids. From that day on he paved a new way of life, free from addiction and crime.
We are so proud of you Joey and thankful that we get to work with you! In your own words “Just stick with your plan & stay positive”.
