Frank writes: What I have gained through community living at Caritas is everything that I have lost, eventually would have lost and so much more.  Most importantly I have a better understanding of myself and who I am.  This is something which could only have been attained through community living.  We are able to view [..]

Scotty writes: Drugs, alcohol and gambling is what I turned to at an early age.  It robbed me from many opportunities, and took extreme positive potential away from myself.  It drained the life of those who loved me the most.   Drinking mouthwash in a homeless shelter was the end result.   I was totally desperate for [..]

Audley writes:  The worst mistake I’ve made in my life to this day, I would have to say is to finish high school and instead of going to college for a career, I chose to go with a friend to Florida for a year, which is where my drug habit started and it so happened [..]
