“Maggie’s Saved My Broken Heart by Teaching Me About the Disease of Alcoholism” – Family Support Testimonial

by | Sep 12, 2019 | #Hopeless, Community, Disease, Family, Recover

Judy’s story is absolutely beautiful. It’s a theme that we are continually blessed by: those women and families that we serve, turn around, walk through our doors, and serve the new women and families at The Magdalen House.

Judy is a dedicated volunteer in our Family Support Group, actively calling women’s family members to invite them to learn more about their loved one’s disease of alcoholism. Not only is Judy a rockstar volunteer, she is also a financial supporter that equips us on our vision to build a thriving community of recovered women and their families — one woman at a time.

Why Judy Gives to The Magdalen House

❝ I am an enthusiastic supporter of The Magdalen House for the simple reason to give back that which has so freely been given to me and my family. My daughter was a client at the house several years ago and, although she did not have the desperation to embrace recovery at that time, I know her experience at Maggie’s provided her with a solid foundation from which she is now making progress in her recovery journey. Maggie’s House also saved my broken heart by teaching me about the disease of alcoholism, offering recommendations for my own healing and has given me wonderful friends through the Family Support Group. It is my privilege to support this invaluable organization. ❞
