Big Things in Clients Lives


I get a lot of messages by text, email and Facebook from clients no longer on the Drag. Some are simply traveling but quite a few are no longer on the street.

I had a wonderful conversation with one young man who's living in a smaller Central Texas town. He has a job. He has a girlfriend and a place to stay. He is in a band and pursuing his music. He is clean from heroin for more than a year. He no longer drinks in excess. What a great big accomplishment for him!

We got another report within days of a young man living in quite a remote part of Texas now. He's going to school. He's taking meds and getting counseling for an emotional issue that has long plagued him. He goes to church and regularly reads the Bible. He called me to apologize for not listening more while under our care in Austin. What a great thing to be able to do! 

We love hearing from clients doing well! Keep it up, folks! You're in inspiration to us and to those clients still working to get there.
