Mission Heart changed my life. When I got here I was not only materially and physically broke, I was spiritually broke. I was hopeless. Mission Heart gave me hope. The women loved me and supported me as I grew to love myself and build a relationship with God. When the tragedy of my son's death from addiction knocked me to my knees, the women of Mission Heart surrounded me with love and support. I know God has me at Mission Heart during this difficult time for a reason and I will forever be grateful for the love and support the women here continue to show me.​

Mission Heart has been a very positive experience for me. Coming in, I thought my age would make a difference but it doesn't because the Lord is no respecter of persons. Because of Mission Heart my relationship with the Lord is greater. My journey is greater and I do have goals because of Mission Heart.

When I got to Mission Heart I was completely broken-physically, materialistically, but most of all spiritually. I had successfully ruined every important relationship and tore down everything that meant anything in my life. I was hopeless. When I finally decided I had been beat down long enough I reached out to Mission Heart. These women embraced me and loved me when I couldn’t even love myself. Since I have been here I’ve been active in AA, and also stay connected with our church. I have regained a relationship with God, which has allowed relationships with my loved ones to be restored. Not only that, My son and I have gained a whole new family! Through all of the support and encouragement, along with spiritual guidance, I’ve learned to live again. I’ve never been happier and felt more fulfilled and at peace in my entire life. I am eternally grateful for Mission Heart and all they have done for me.​

Before coming to Mission Heart, I was struggling to figure out who I was as well as my purpose in life. I had battled with the disease of addiction for far too long and felt truly hopeless. I ruined relationships, destroyed trust, and felt alone in the lie I was living. I knew I couldn’t continue my life that way, but I had no idea how I could change. Today, I thank God for bringing me to Mission Heart, where I was able to begin making that change I longed for. In a community full of supportive women who have had similar experiences to mine, I was shown what it means to seek, trust, and depend on God in order to live happily each day. I will forever be grateful for Mission Heart and the amazing change and restoration it has brought to my life!​

Mission Heart helped me build a relationship with God. What more could a person want? When you're used to seeing broken people, unchanging patterns, unstable environments; you probably think, "this is who I am." That's a lie. Mission Heart and my Jesus have shown me time and time again that I am not who I used to be. Today I walk with my head held high because I know who goes before me. There are miracles all around me today. So many women here at Mission Heart are living proof that women can recover. I'm eternally grateful for this foundation and what Mission Heart stands for. Without it, who knows where I would be?​

I had completely lost myself prior to arriving at Mission Heart. God led me straight to Mission Heart on June 18, 2018 after one of my daughters found the Mission Heart website. I can’t begin to tell you all of the blessings that have been bestowed on me since that time! I am surrounded by a family of supportive women, and I have the honor and privilege of giving back to Mission Heart and the community what has been so freely given to me. My life is being restored on a daily basis. I am forever grateful, and I absolutely love the life I have and live today. #makingadifference​

I came to Mission Heart on September 28, 2018 from jail with intentions to get closer to God. I didn’t know what to expect from this program, but I was tired of living in and out of prison walls. The ladies at Mission Heart have encouraged me to pursue my love and dedication to God and for the first time in my life I have a job! I am also enrolled in welding school which is being funded by Mission Heart. I couldn’t have prayed for a better place to start my journey in sobriety! I will forever be thankful for Mission Heart, Mrs. DeeBee, and Papa Doug.​
