Get Help Give Now

A Profound Perspective

Wendi and her familyHello! I am Wendi, a single mother of four beautiful daughters and one autistic son. When people ask me why I found myself and my daughters without a home to call our own, there is no direct answer that I can give them. It was just a symptom of a deeper problem.

When my family showed up on the doorstep of Star of Hope at 3 a.m. after driving halfway across the country, I needed more than just a place to stay, I needed help. I thought that coming to Houston was allowing me to escape the pain of my past. However at the Star of Hope, I learned that I had to face my past head on in order to heal. Now with over four years of sobriety under my belt through a successful recovery plan, I have learned to use my past to propel me toward my future.

The Star of Hope is not just a place, the Star of Hope is “people” who love and care for my family; the people who nursed me back to health over the course of our 31 month stay. We moved out in July 2011, but my heart will never leave. There I found people who will forever be my family and a permanent part of my life. I am excited to share “the rest of the story” as well as a few select writings while I was a client.
