Transformation Spotlight- Annie: Nicole’s House saved my life. I was abandoned as a child and I married young to an abusive man. I was able to get away from him. I remarried, had a son, and my husband died from cancer before my child turned one. It was just my son and I. I finished college and taught school. I then remarried and had two more children. My husband was abusive, and I turned to drugs as a way to escape. When I lost custody of my younger son and daughter, I worked for DHS for six years but eventually lost my DHS job due to my abuse. I have been in and out of prison and have eight felonies. I was living with my sister when I learned about Nicole’s House. I was still using. I thought, “I need that.” I came to Nicole’s House in May of 2018, and I graduated this pat May. I now work for a drug and alcohol treatment center. I am able to give back and help others in addiction. I will be forever grateful to Nicole’s House and the amazing volunteers who loved me when I was certainly unlovable. They never wavered.
