Getting life back
LEFSA gave me my life back. It didn’t just give me my life back, it gave me my family’s life back too. Because when I got better, my family got better also. And not only did my family get better, but my community got a little better.
I dedicate my life to helping others who are caught up in this vicious cycle of poverty and of drug addiction and abuse. And I know that there are other “Jameses” out there who really need help, and I can be an instrument of this help and of this hope and of God’s compassion and love. So, with that, I really thank the Sisters of Charity—if not for their work, I don’t know where I would be.
I am the Operations Manager at LEFSA. I also just became an ordained minister, and this couldn’t have been done without the help and support of this ministry.
