I stayed at Hopewell Recovery House for a period of three months, and during that time my meetings with Donna were immensely valuable. I was starting my life over and also switching industries professionally. Donna was very supportive from a recovery standpoint, and also introduced me to several successful sober people in the industry I was interested in.
Through planning with her and meeting with her contacts, I was able to better understand the challenges I faced in gaining employment, and in making friends in a new city.
When I spoke at my first meeting, I was very nervous, but seeing Donna in the front row in the front row helped me gain confidence.
It meant a lot to me, personally that Donna took a genuine interest in my recovery. She took the time to read and help shape some of my job-related writing. She also provided constant encouragement by giving me materials to read and suggesting further avenues to explore.
A few months later I gained employment and was no longer at Hopewell. Donna continued to be supportive and show an interest. Not only are her services valuable for professional development, but her compassion and continued interest in people shows that her involvement is an asset to anyone’s recovery.
I am proud and grateful to have worked with her and to call her a friend. | Ali, Client
Donna helped me greatly in my early sobriety. She took time to get to know me and my professional goals. She introduced me to local sober women in my field who generously gave their time to meet with me and offer suggestions for my career. One wonderful woman she arranged for me to meet, continued to be in my sober life and became an invaluable friend.
Donna helped me with my resume and offered tips on how to market myself to achieve my goals. In addition to career assistance, Donna introduced me to meetings where I met many successful women who became cornerstones of my sobriety.
Even since I moved out of Massachusetts, Donna has continues to support me and rally for my well being. I don’t know what sobriety would have looked like had she not come into my life at Hopewell. | Angela, Client
