Sage Senior Mentoring

It can be challenging to transition successfully from living in an institution into the general community. Volunteers 55+ provide guidance and practical assistance to women living in our halfway house who are preparing to move back into the broader community.

Laura is a street and law involved woman struggling with a history of substance abuse and frequent relapses. Laura participates in our Healing from Abuse program and is connecting much of her substance abuse issues with trauma she experienced as a child. By understanding how her history of trauma impacts her life today and how it can trigger her substance abuse, Laura is healing from her experiences and achieving sobriety.  Laura is staying sober, exploring employment opportunities and developing healthy and enriching relationships.
