“At the Cedar house women learn to become more self-sufficient by having responsibility. This applies to myself as I have made myself accountable to the Cedar House Foundation. They become productive members of society by volunteering in the CH food bank, getting jobs and learning new skills. Lastly, I feel they get a sense of LOVE from community from women of the Cedar House and Sisters of Serenity. I have learned that nothing heals my heart more than being with women. This is the most important element for me. Working with the women is a joy to me and very important to my own recovery. I wouldn’t be where I am today. Being at the Cedar House I have learned to heal, love and befriend all over again.” – Christina B.
“My journey at the Cedar House has been an amazing spiritual experience. I have learned to be humble, to help other people, to be in a community and learn new things. My favorite new learning is gardening, which brings me peace. I have 15 months clean and sober and I have the recovery house and God to thank. I have tried to be sober so many times in my life and have failed. Along with my sponsor and all the programs The Cedar House has to offer, I believe in my “New” sober life every day. No more lies. I now know I have a purpose.” – Renee
“I have always felt out of place. Walking into The Cedar House I found my sense of belonging. People who knew my day to day struggles. They did not judge, instead they embraced me. Without this community I would not be alive today. They have shown me a new way of living.” – Kendra
