How Sherita Changed Everything

Addiction treatment, housing, job training, employment

Sherita
It takes a lot to break a 30 year addiction to drugs and alcohol. But Sherita was determined, and thanks to you, we were able to provide the services and support that she needed to completely change her life.

Following treatment, Sherita graduated from SOME’s job training program and immediately landed a good job. She's now living in SOME's Chabraja House where many of her neighbors are also in recovery, and says that she loves being in a place where people support and want what’s best for each other.

Her next goals are to earn her GED and ultimately move into market rate housing. We think that for Sherita, the sky is the limit!
