Erin's Story

“I came here to go deep.” These words, spoken by a NAOMI resident of just one week, invited me to press in around the difficult issues that perpetuated the addiction, crime and the ensuing fallout in her life. One full year later, this mom has experienced dramatic shifts in her life. Surrounded by courageous NAOMI staff and fellow moms, we’ve kept pressing deep and she has had the strength to face a judge for over 20 crimes, maintain her sobriety for nearly 18 months, begin to name the dysfunctional cycles in her relationships and make extremely difficult decisions about what she will and will not allow in her and her child’s lives.
