To All My Friends at Sojourner Truth House
Words cannot convey the thanks I wish to give you all. When you live the kind of life I have lived, people look down on you, judge you and turn their backs on you. I came to Sojourner with a tired body, a confused mind and a broken spirit. I was ashamed and lost. The very minute I stepped in the door, I felt God's love, mercy and kindness.

Kimberly lived a rough life, but has managed to survive by releasing the hurt, anger and depression through her writings. Many of her poems were written after or during a cycle of domestic violence. She always remained strong and kept her faith that “God would provide”.
Kimberly aspires to write a book of poetry entitled, “Through Kim’s Eyes” so that one day the world can know that even through pain you can still be free.

When I walked through the doors of Sojourner Truth House, I was broken down and hopeless. Today, I am full of hope and love for myself. With the help of STH staff and the group activities, I have acquired new skills to continue on this wonderful journey called life!
You see, I am a 27-year-old crack addict. I have been struggling with addiction since the age of 13. I was raised in the Catholic Church and I was instilled with good values. At the age of 13, I was raped. After that, everything went downhill. I've been in and out of rehab centers, jails, and prisons. I have four felony convictions and over 35 arrests. Upon release, I went back to drugs. How insane is that?
