"My Sister's House" - A Home for the Mentally Ill
Organized by: Veronica Williams
As we all know mental illness and substance abuse has grown to astounding numbers in our communities. With the use of illicit drugs, genetic and environmental issues many people have lost their mental and emotional ability to cope. They live lives in dark, lonely worlds filled with self-defeating thoughts and are subject to be prey of demoralizing human beings. Sparrow Counseling and Consulting, LLC. Meets and serves at least five to eight women and young girls, a week who have fallen victim to the disease of mental and substance disorder. Sometimes, as young as 16 years old. Because of our countries take on Mental Health Reform, these woman and young girls often find themselves living on the streets, without food, clothing, medication or support. They fall into the hands of Human Trafficking Sex rings or prostitution, further deteriorating in a world of sin and conflict. My dream is to purchase a safe home to give these women and young girls the opportunity to recovery! The home will be a resource for mental health and substance abuse programming, recovery and stabilization. A fresh start! Would you join me in my efforts? God bless and thank you for any donation you can afford!
