I would like to give thanks to the State of MN, and the programs like Affirmation House!
I had reached my destination at the very bottom of the cesspool where I had lost my wife and kids, my house I spent the better part of a decade remodeling. I could go no further without help.
I landed up at rehab which was much overdue. While at rehab I met Ben and James, little did I know I would have them in my life for over 5 years.
I had 2 ½ years before my first relapse. But unlike my wife and others, Affirmation House didn’t give up on me. Instead the encouraged me to get it together again. “when I couldn’t even volunteer my services for free” Affirmation House found a place for me!
Cooper is my cat. Cooper as well as myself came from a shelter. Ben put us together and Cooper is my favorite everything. I don’t get that lonely now, and Affirmation is like one big family.
Affirmation provides more than just a place to sleep!
- They give counseling
- They give guidance
- They inspire you to live a clean and useful lifestyle
- They provide a home and family on a larger scale than one is used to, yet they make it work for everyone
- They give me work when no one else would.
Without the guidance and structured life that I get with Affirmation House I would surely end up back on the streets and in the bottle. But because my Case Worker and my House Manager continue to keep me on track, I’m working part time and sober. I’ve even got my drivers license back. So I thank you Affirmation House for all you do.
