Hear from our residents ...
I learned that living with other people just like me was the best way to build a solid foundation and a great new life. More than anything else it is consideration for others and behaviors consisting of love, patience and tolerance. I gained tools and support to get my life back on track.”
The purpose of CRA and transitional housing is not just to provide a roof overhead. It is for growth. It is for healing. And it is where miracles happen.”
I was the type of drinker that drank alone at home and in my case the garage. I knew about Come Rest Awhile because my sponsor took me to an AA meeting there. I remember thinking at the time that I wish I could stay there around sober women. It was a safe place. I have to this day stayed sober because of Come Rest Awhile and have been reunited with my children.”
My time at Come Rest Awhile was very healing and rewarding. I came six months after treatment but was still not ready to live on my own. I made lifelong friends and managed to rebuild my life. I learned how to live without drugs and alcohol on a daily basis with constant love and support.”
