Connie’s Story of Hope

“I’d lost everything… my family, my house. I’d tried twice to slit my wrists and end it all.”

Connie’s Story of Hope (Quicktime Version)

Connie – Portland Rescue Mission from pdxmission on Vimeo.

Alcohol consumed Connie’s life. She spiraled down a black hole, unable to escape. There were times she slept on the sidewalk. “I’m embarrassed by what I’d do for a safe place to shower or use the bathroom.” Death seemed like the only way out.

Connie found a thread of hope to cling to. In our recovery program, she’s found healthy ways to combat her addiction and live a full life again.
