Where I want to be in life.

My name is Mykha, I am 28 years old and a mother of 2 children. I used to get high and live on the street for about 4 years from addiction that came about from a car accident injury where I was prescribed Lortabs. From there I got into other prescription pills, eventually ending up using heroin and meth. For the past 4 months I have been a client at the Shirley Temple Transitional Homes and in that 4 months I have managed to hold down a job at Chili’s and D.T. Prime, both located in downtown Charleston WV. I also attend local recovery meetings (AA/NA) as a well-known face and made a good name for myself. I have taken a budgeting class and managed to save money for a car and recently applied for housing through Charleston HUD and working on getting my license and my children back, all thanks to this program. I probably would never have seen these accomplishments without the help and support and security of the Shirley Temple program where I was shown how to grow into what I want and where I want to be in life.
