“If it weren’t for Broadway House, I don’t know where I’d be. They saved my life.”
Tracey is dreaming of a safe place she can finally call home. The Newark resident was in a relationship that left her heartbroken and homeless. Addicted to heroin and alcohol, Tracey was referred to Broadway House for Continuing Care after surgery to rehabilitate a broken knee, address her addictions, and heal her spirit.
Tracey recalls, “When I came to Broadway House, it took months and months to finally get out of my wheelchair and start walking with the help of a walker. Now, I’ve kicked methadone and my substance abuse, diabetes, and high blood pressure are under control. If it weren’t for Broadway House, I don’t know where I’d be. They saved my life.”
Today, our social services staff members are working with Tracey on applying for Social Security and finding a permanent place to live. Tracey says, “I want a real place to call home. I’d like to find a women’s program to help me take up a trade and learn some skills. My health is good, and that makes my mother so happy. Her prayers were answered. I thank God… and I thank Broadway House.”
