Celebrating Precious' Graduation
Eden House staff and interns pose with the happy graduate
Last month we had the pleasure of celebrating a graduation at Eden House!
Family, friends, Eden House staff, and supporters attended a touching ceremony held at Christ Church Cathedral where Precious was presented with her hard earned graduation certificate. Precious is now living in her very own apartment, furnished with donations from our incredible supporters!

We are so proud of Precious and commend her on her tenacity and commitment. She is absolutely one of a kind and we wish her only the best as she moves forward in her recovery!
