Around the Center
"Every man, every trick . . . I lost a part of my soul, of myself . . I came to CASH and a staff member shared her story with me and I knew I wasn’t alone . .. I shared my story for the first time, I did not feel judged. I left the first counseling session feeling I could not wait to go back and feeling safe, hopeful and excited.”
"This program ... (was) able to not only help me open my eyes but they were able to gain my trust. I am now clean and sober and on the road to success not only in my personal life but also in being a productive citizen in the community. CASH has helped me with the resources I needed. They ... have also given me confidence, hope, self-esteem, guidance and encouragement. The staff at CASH helped me get my life back. "
"I do not prostitute anymore since I've been clean and stay away from unsafe places that may trigger me, ... Today I am happier and healthier, C.A.S.H. is a good program ... we need it".
"I became this evil, no good person. It took some time before I came around but it has happened. I came to CASH one night feeling one of my depression moods and feeling like I wanted to die. ..They [the staff] walked, talked and stood by my side in my lowest point in my life. They saved my life."
"I used to think I could never have a better life . . . the one that seemed to be unreachable in some far away land. Thanks to the support of many compassionate women in the community, I was able to transform the destructive world I used to live in into a productive and enriched lifestyle with healthy choices."
