“God took me out of the gutter and helped me”….hear Joy’s story

Joy-2014-photo-for-sphere“I just walked off one day and didn’t go back. Then I looked up and suddenly it was ten years later.”

That’s how Joy described ten lost years of drug addiction, filled with despair, loneliness, and regret. I’m Burt Rosen, President of Knox Area Rescue Ministries.  Joy had attempted treatment 15 times before she came to KARM’s  women’s Serenity program. Every day, KARM welcomes people like Joy who have lost their bearings through addiction… and others who find themselves in situations they can’t control. With your help, KARM will offer each one a path back to stability, success and sobriety.

 “KARM’s Serenity program allowed me to heal from the inside out. God took me out of the gutter and helped me to become the woman I always wanted to be,” Joy now says.
