Stories of Hope
The Value of Trust
We would like to share a story with you. It is a story of trust and transformation. This is Brad’s story. A 28-year-old native of New Orleans, Brad fell into a lifestyle of addiction while working in the service industry. He describes this time in his life, “drug and alcohol abuse [was] rampant. I was unhappy and not living up to my potential and knew I needed outside help.”
Brad’s desire to change his life brought him to the Haven House for recovery two months ago and he is currently working on one our trucks picking up donations for our thrift shops as his work therapy part of the program. Recently, while sorting through a box of donated books, he opened a book on tape and was surprised to find that it was stuffed full of cash. Precisely, $900 in one-hundred dollar bills.
