Celebrating Catherine's Graduation
"I wish Catherine the best in life. I just love her."- Eden House Resident
This month, we celebrated another Resident Graduation!

Catherine is the youngest ever graduate of Eden House's two year program.
She successfully completed the housing authority voucher application and has recently signed a lease for her very own apartment.
In her two years at Eden House, Catherine attended several semesters of community college, worked tirelessly with her 12 step sponsor, and became active in supporting other women in their recovery processes both at Eden House, and within the larger community.
We are saddened to see Catherine leave us, but we are very excited for her future.
