"It takes a tremendous amount of courage for a mother to walk into a shelter or treatment program with her children. I feel honored and humbled to witness first hand the transformation of mothers who have struggled with addiction, homelessness, and instability as they begin new lives as sober, stable and self-sufficient women. What a wonderful gift these moms are giving to their children!"
