Hello, my name is Pamela Brown and I am a former resident of the Star of Hope Dowling location. When I went to the SOH it was at God's will. He gave me the strength and courage to say I was tired of living the way I was living and exposing my kids to the lifestyle as well.
I had a 9 month experience with the SOH and I can honestly say it was inspiring, some days overwhelming, just to see the affects life has on us all in so many different ways. I regained my independence, my children felt like kids again without having to be worried about me. I thank God for this place and the wonderful people that believed in me. Thank you Father, for Star of Hope.
It's not somewhere to go to live on easy street, it's somewhere to go to pave a path in a walk with God...if that's what you want. That's what makes the difference, YOU HAVE TO WANT IT.
Today I'm a salaried employee, living a normal life, driving my own car and enjoying my children to the fullest. I'm still a work in progress, but everyday I pray for continued strength and guidance and that's what helps me to make it through.
