and had two daughters.
        My marriage was going downhill and I began drinking; he
abused me and almost beat me to death. By the time of our divorce,
I had become a full-blown alcoholic. From alcohol, I moved on to
marijuana and began partying all the time. I eventually became ad-
dicted to crack and my ex-husband took the children away from me.
I was going downhill fast when, one day, I had a spiritual experience
at church and managed to stay clean and sober for five years. I was
seeing my girls every other weekend and thought I was getting my
life together. I began going to happy hours with my colleagues after
work, but because I didn’t know enough about my addiction, this
put me back on the road I came from.
        Within six months, my life was spiraling out of control again.
I was in and out of jail and this pattern continued for several years.
My girls eventually had their kids but I never made time to see my
grandchildren because I didn’t want anything to do with them. At
one point, there was no one left who would bail me out of jail. Upon
release, I sat on the steps in front of the jail for hours. A police of-
ficer realized no one was coming to get me and she told me about

                                              Being part of the Harbor Light Choir gave me opportunities
                                      to share my testimony with so many people. I learned that there are

       She was a dancer and was going from city to city to support
her drug addiction. When we were younger, she lost the rights to
my siblings and me because she was on crack and could no longer
care for us. I was curious about drugs and how they could possibly
be more important to her than her own children. My mother intro-
duced me to drugs and I immediately became addicted to crack. She
stole all my money and abandoned me again. I ended up getting
pregnant but continued my drug use anyway. I was turning tricks
to support my addiction, but dealers stopped selling to me because
they started to notice I was pregnant.
       I kept trying to push the knot in my stomach back in until I
realized I was killing the only person that may ever love me. I en-

ed using and selling again and began moving from state to state. At
age 25, I wound up in Virginia with a pregnant girlfriend. I was there
for the delivery of our twin sons, but she would not let me see them
again after that. I became very depressed because I love kids and
was not able to see my own. The depression led to more drug use
and I finally hit rock bottom with nowhere to go.
        I was homeless and living on the streets for three months
when I was hit in the head with a brick and had everything stolen
from me. I entered a detox program and stayed sober for six months
but started smoking weed again. When I returned to Houston to
be closer to my family, I got caught up with the old crowd and got
hooked on cocaine. I told my dad I was finally ready to change, and
he took me to The Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center to
get help. I had previously entered detox programs to please family
members and girlfriends, but this time, I was doing it for myself.
        I learned about my addiction, took anger management class-
es, stopped smoking cigarettes, went through the recovery program
and now sponsor others who are going through the program. I have

                                      I am a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Conroe and have
                                      been volunteering with The Salvation Army’s meal program here for
many questions.                       23 years. As part of a community partnership, a different church
                                      comes in each day to prepare and serve a warm meal to the needy

                                      we take over the kitchen and I lead a group of parishioners involved

                                      faces each week – homeless men and women who need a meal and
                                      social interaction – but there are occasionally new faces as well. Dur-
                                      ing Spring Break and summer time, we see their hungry children. At

                                      nity to provide food to them each week. This is a safe place for them
                                      to come share a meal with neighbors and feel welcome. We know that
                                      our time and effort is needed and appreciated.
                                              Most of the women in my group have been volunteering here
                                      for several years, and we return each week because we enjoy what
                                      we’re doing and seeing the fruits of our labor. I used to bring my chil-
                                      dren to volunteer with me at The Salvation Army. They are grown
                                      now and have their own families, but they teach my grandchildren
                                      the importance of volunteerism as well.
                                              The capital campaign will allow for a new building and a ren-

                                      can be improved in order to serve people more effectively. With a
