My name is Ari T. When I came into the Sarah Marie House I was lost and broken. I felt as if it was my last chance to build my life back up and with the help of Kathi and the girls in the house I started my journey. Kathi genuinely cared about me and my sobriety. She loved me until I could love myself and at the same time held me extremely accountable while I was there. To be honest she still does. I got the opportunity to go to the 12 step meetings that I felt comfortable at with the support of my sober living. Because of the Sarah Marie House I got the opportunity to get plugged back into AA and get ready to live as a sober woman on my own. I lived at that house for 4 1/2 months and it was some of the most memorable and helpful months of my life. Today I am approaching 2 years of sobriety and I will forever be grateful to Kathi and the Sarah Marie House for all that they did and continue to do for me.
