Maria's Story

Investing in Renewal House helps keep families together.



My number one goal was to have a healthy child.

The mission and dedication of Renewal House changed my life.

My case manager and therapist taught me the skills I needed to face life on its own terms and to deal with those terms without the use of drugs.

I gave birth to a healthy baby boy in June of 2016. 

He is smart, beautiful, and full of life.

I have completed my Master’s Degree in Social Work, and I plan to pursue my Doctorate in Non-Profit Management.

Now it is my turn to help other people have happy, healthy and productive lives.

We have made a home here, and I am able to participate regularly in recovery community activities.
