DomoniqueHear how you helped Domonique rebuild her life after she hit rock bottom.
"I decided to go to Vegas for my dirty 30. I drank about every hour. The drinks were just coming, they were pouring in and I was taking them, shot by shot. My drinking hit rock bottom, I was drinking every day. It spiraled out of control. It got to a place where I was couch surfing, sleeping in shelters, anywhere I could find a little bit of warmth to lay my head at at night. It felt terrible. I felt like I failed as a mom. My answers were all in the bottle. I knew I needed to quit, but I needed some help to quit. I couldn't do it on my own...."
Watch the video above for the transformation story and final reveal of a new "Sunday Best" outfit for Domonique to match her hope and fresh outlook on life — just in time for Easter!
“It's never too late. I knew this was a place where I could get help and my kids would be safe.”
Easter at the Mission is about personal redemption and new life for women like Domonique. Often estranged from family and friends, many enter our Women's Recovery Program with little hope, self-respect, and few, if any possessions. Over the course of a year, they experience love and trust, break addictions, learn about God’s unconditional love and acceptance, rebuild their families and lives with dignity and respect.
With so many hurting people coming into the Mission, a message of hope needs to be spread all over King County! A new life for someone like Domonique can start with you!
