Rescue Mission Profile in Commitment

“You have to build your recovery on a solid foundation”

Janet came to the Rescue Mission a year ago looking for recovery and a new start. What she found was a community of people who have encouraged her and helped her to find her talents, peace, and purpose. When asked about encouragement at the Mission she said “I discovered that I have a talent for art. When I was working the in the art studio, Mrs. Beverly told me that I had a gift and that I should keep going, now I’m looking into working in Art Therapy when I graduate”. Encouragement wasn’t all she found at the Mission, she found a passion for helping others, and a commitment to serving others who are seeking recovery once she leaves here. “Maybe by building my skills, it means I can help others in recovery” she thought aloud, “but today I’m committed to my recovery”.

Janet can be see smiling all around the Rescue Mission, bringing light to everyone she connects with. To hear more on Janet’s story, listen to our podcast “Rescue Recorded”. Her interview in Season 1, Episode 3 looks into her transformation and what she views as critical resources at the Mission and beyond.
