Trenton came to the shelter a broken and hurting man. He had been living with his wife and children and even had a promising career at a local factory. After severe marital issues he began a downward spiral into drugs and hopping from couch to couch. As hard as he tried he could not escape the drug and alcohol culture that he seemed to find in every new home. Feeling trapped, Trenton, succumbed to the desires of his addiction and soon found himself homeless and estranged from the family that he once was so close to.
In Trenton's first stay at the shelter his addiction continued to have a great hold on his life. After random drug screening, Trenton tested positive for drugs and admitted to using drugs while staying at the shelter. He found a local friend to stay with and after his suspension from the shelter was completed, he reapplied to enter the shelter. With a glowing letter of re-admittance and a new hope for a life of sobriety in his heart he was accepted back into the shelter.
Trenton hit the ground running and began looking for employment as soon as he returned. Within a short amount of time he had three jobs and was already working on restoring his relationship with his children and his wife. After many conversation and prayer with staff, Trenton was walking a path of hope with a new found joy as he celebrated each and every day as another step towards his recovery.
After two months, Trenton, was finding stability in his life. He moved into the local Oxford House and worked even harder on his relationship with his wife so one day they may live together again and raise their children with the love of God surrounding them.
