Paradise’s Story

“Light of Life taught me how to put God first, be a mother to my children, and take care of me. They taught me to find me again and it gave me a purpose to live.”
– Paradise, Women & Children’s Program Graduate

Paradise took on a lot of responsibility when she was very young as she was raised by her mother and grandmother along with her six siblings. Her mom and children pushed her to get clean after she struggled with addiction for years after her grandmother died when she was 13. It was then where she found Sojourner’s House eventually transitioned into Light of Life’s Women and Children’s program.
