I was going through a divorce and had had a nervous breakdown from years of abuse among other situations. I had come to the end of my rope, literally. I had enrolled in college courses at North Harris, Tomball to be a Chemical Dependency Counselor, but I had no where to live. I was told of Star of Hope's Transitional Living Center by someone at the Church that I was attending. I was accepted and was able to have the stress of no place to stay taken away. After almost six months was able to find housing and a job and get my life back on track.
I appreciate the time I spent there, even though it was a kind of culture shock. It was what I needed to get me past the awfulness and focus on what I could do to make my life a success.
I did graduate from NHCC, Tomball in May of 2000 with a Chemical Dependency Counselor Associate degree. I have since moved to Lake Jackson, TX. and I am working at a local privately owned bank as the Branch Manager and now Sr. Lending Admin.
Star Of Hope was truly a GOD send. I would love to share all of my story with families and individuals who are currently experiencing life at the shelter.
GOD Bless you and all the work you do for others.
