"I'm so grateful for all I was given"
"When I was referred to CenterPointe I was leaving the Regional Center after a 3 month stay. I had really limited resources - I found a job in food service which only paid about $2.00 per hour and I had to rely on tips to makes ends meet.
My counseling at CenterPointe was a lifesaver. I had so much trauma in my childhood. I had to learn new coping skills. Because I didn't have to pay for services, I could stick with it and I made real progress. I started to reach my potential.
In time, CenterPointe made a referral to Vocational Rehabilitation that changed the arc of my life. I'm the first in my family to graduate with a four year degree. I still live with mental illness but today I'm in recovery, healthy and stable.
Without CenterPointe my life would be vastly different. I'm so grateful for all I was given."
