"Thanks to a loving God, I have been given another chance at life through recovery. It has enabled me access to a life I never thought possible. This would never be possible without the support of people around me all the way from my family to organizations such as Voices of Hope. Receiving this scholarship is another example of the undeserved gifts I’ve received from a new way of life and the unconditional support that others have shown me in this lifelong struggle."
