Before arriving at ACCESS, Alexa had custody of only two of her four children, was home insecure, and struggled with addiction, but she knew she wanted to make a better life. After taking a leap into sober living for a few months, Alexa and her children found themselves without a place to sleep. She was able to bring her family to stay as ACCESS Shelter.
Alexa began taking full advantage of life skills programming as well as working through her individualized service program. She gave it her all, made strong connections with staff, especially the Health and Wellness Coordinator.
Alexa now has re-gained custody of all her children, has a job as a recovery coach at a non-profit, her own car, and the goal to help women experiencing homelessness and struggling with addiction.
