New beginnings and REAL CHANGE in action!

We are so proud to that Maria is now a GRADUATE of Saint John’s Program for Real Change. Maria says her goal is to eventually become a SUD (Substance Use Disorder) counselor. Her motivation, she said, “is to give back to women, letting them know it can be done, you can maintain your sobriety.”

New year, new goals, new dreams, new beginnings. It seems this time of year we’re surrounded with thoughts and suggestions for making a new start. Some new beginnings are exciting and fun and others are full of challenges. As women walk through the doors of Saint John’s Program for Real Change for their own “new beginning,” they may be full of doubt, fear and relief — Most importantly, they will be filled with hope.

We first introduced you to Maria V. in January 2022.

Maria admitted, “Living in a close community is a challenge and sometimes communicating well with others, especially with people I don’t necessarily like, is hard.” And yet, she appreciates the opportunity to “work on Maria.” She says classes such as anger management, healthy relationships, and money matters have been the most helpful and that she’s working diligently to live out all the things she is learning.
