Denise Porter's Story

When I came to STH, I was homeless and on drugs. All I knew was that I was tired of my life. I didn’t know how to change. STH saw I had two problems and they had me go to outside groups as well as their own recovery groups and other groups to build up other areas in my life. I stopped using drugs but I needed to stay stopped. Days turned into weeks and weeks turned into months. What I found out is that there is more in life to do. They sent us women to other outside functions like college at IUN for two weeks, Medieval Times and parties. They offered classes on self esteem and other subjects. These helped me so much. I’m a new person. The woman that walked into STH doesn’t exist anymore. I’m a new person with a new attitude. I have ten months (as of October, 2012) clean from drugs and I am enjoying my life in my new apartment. Thank God for Sojourner Truth House saving my life…
