Misty's Story

Misty's Story

"I was addicted to Meth and Homeless. On January 5th, 2013 I was arrested for possession of meth. Upon my release from jail I found myself wandering the streets thinking of where I was going to stay" says Misty. My life began to change for the better when I entered The Salvation Army Denver Adult Rehabilitation Center.  At first I thought it was to rigid, and structured. I wanted to leave, but then I realized I had nowhere to go!

When I joined the "Feet on the Street" running program at the ARC I felt I was able to channel all the anger and hatred I had inside me to the difficult task of running long distance races.

Make no mistake, being in the program was hard, but I finished for the first time in my life a project I started. I have since leaving the program, reunited with my two daughters and family, began working in my Aunt's resturant. The Salvation Army Denver ARC has helped me in so many ways to be able to "help myself".  I can never thank them enough!
