Become a Monthly Torchbearer and help struggling neighbors like Rebecca
Rebecca grew up in a household where domestic violence and drug abuse were commonplace. She watched her alcoholic father hit her mother almost every day—and no one in the family ever talked about it.
That turbulent home life forced Rebecca to grow up much too fast. She hit the streets at 13, dabbled with drugs, and got hooked — in short order. At the time, it felt like the only way to cope with the horrors she'd seen.
Rebecca hit a low when that dependence on drugs landed her in prison—where she gave birth to a daughter. By the time she got to the Changing Lives Center, she’d practically lost hope of being reunited with her daughter.
"I came here with a lot of anger over what I had lost," Rebecca says. Thankfully, consistent support from kindhearted Torchbearers showed Rebecca a productive way forward. She focused her energy on becoming the parent her daughter needed her to be. After months of counseling, life-skills training, and prayer, it finally happened.
"I'm a completely different person since coming to the Changing Lives Center," Rebecca says. "The biggest change is I have newfound hope because my daughter is back in my life."
During Rebecca's time at the CLC, she's developed a strong sense of self-worth that had been missing since childhood. Her relationship with Christ has intensified. And she's now firmly committed to helping others discover they're deserving of His love.
"When I leave here, I want to lead other people to Christ," she continues. "I want to be part of someone's recovery like the people who were part of mine."
