OUR STORIES

Pamela

The Hilljack house... Where do I begin. I cannot begin to express my gratitude for this place. Its hard to put into words but I will try. I arrived at the Hilljack with about 7 months sober. I came in broken and had no idea the world I was about to enter. I was full of fear but I knew one thing for sure, I never wanted to go back to drugs and alcohol.

 

So I did what i was asked to do. I got a sponsor and began the steps. I participated in every function weather I wanted to or not. I began to have fun. I began to see what life was about. I started setting goals and next thing you know I was accomplishing every goal I set. The Hilljack had much more faith in me than I ever had in myself and for that im eternally grateful. I could not have made it this far without that. My journey through the 2 years at Hilljack was far more than anything I expected to happen. I have been gainfully employed at a job i am truly passionate about for over a year now.

 

I have moved into my own apartment. And life is something more beautiful and gratifying than I ever dreamed possible for an addict like me. My deepest thank you to this amazing organization and people there. I could have not done any of this without them. I left the Hilljack a put back together, confident woman. We do recover. 

Krista

Hi, my name is Krista and I am an alcoholic and addict. I came to the HillJack House in March 2018. I was beaten, battered, and broke down. I had been living a sad, lonely life. A life of never ending addiction. I decided to come to the HillJack House because I knew I needed to make a drastic change in my life if I was going to live. I couldn’t have been more correct about my choice.

 

The HillJack House has completely saved and changed my life. It helped me reach a place in my recovery I never thought was possible. I have love, peace, and serenity in my life today. I have also rebuilt relationships that I thought were destroyed, and have developed new friendships with the wonderful women in the house. I have regained trust, where it had been completely broken. I have structure and comfort in my life. In the beginning of this awesome journey, I was still blinded. As the journey went on, I saw the light at the end of the tunnel. It was dim at first, but as I continued to grow, it became brighter and easier to see. When I made it to the destination, I was in an awesome place and I was able to go on with my life. I moved out in May 2019, with the confidence that I will live my life  sober, through honesty and integrity.

 

There is hope for everyone. Addiction doesn’t have to rule your life like it used to rule mine. If you’re serious about changing your life, then look no further. HillJack House is for you!

The Hilljack House turned a broken and irresponsible person into a trustworthy, confident and reliable woman. I was given the chance to rebuild my life, stay sober, coexist with others and to be able to make a better life possible for me and my five year old daughter. They rallied behind me when i lost my mother and had i not been held accountable im not sure if i could have stayed sober. Thanks for requiring me to get a sponsor, go to meetings, work, pay rent  and helped with many other resources. I will forever be grateful.

Vontae

We are proud to share this accomplishment about Vontae McMiller. Since moving into the Hilljack House, Vontae has successfully graduated from the Gateway Free and Clean Program. Plus he is gainfully employed and considered an asset to his employer, as he received a performance based raise after his 90 day review for outstanding work.

 

We at Hilljack, who has been witnessing his progress since he moved in, could not be happier for him. He continues to work the twelve steps with a qualified sponsor in the program, goes to meetings and attends the fellowship. This is why we do what we do.


Congratulations, Vontae!!

Sarah

The Hilljack House has forever changed my life. I came to St. Louis straight from prison. I was in both of the halfway houses for women here. I knew I wasn't ready to be on my own. I hadn't even worked a recovery program before. I had been to meetings, but had not done any of the suggested things, mostly because I wasn't ready to. I was required to get a sponsor within 2 weeks of moving in. I did so and my life has changed so much through working the steps. I've rebuilt relationships with my family, including my children, which I thought were broken forever. I thank God, my program, and the Hilljack House for all these things. 

 

Before coming here I was content, or so I thought, to be without friends. The women here didn't let that fly. They got me out of my "comfort zone" of being a loner. When my mom was diagnosed with cancer for the third time, there wasn’t a single lady who let me be isolated. Today I can say that I am a good friend, daughter, sister, and mother. Before coming here, I don't think I knew how to be any of those things, nor did I really want to. Now I know I have people in my life who look up to me and call me to talk about their own problems because I was able to share my own story. Two and a half years ago there wasn't anyone who looked up to me for anything, but now I'm a responsible and productive member of society. 

 

Thanks to the Hilljack House, I was released from probation 2 years early and have had a job ever since. Even when changing jobs, I provide my employers with a 2 week notice, something I had never done before. I pay my child support every week, and as a result, I'm in the process of getting my driver’s license back. I haven't had one since 2012 because I wouldn't work to pay for it. I honestly probably wouldn't even have been concerned about the license if I hadn’t been encouraged to look into it. The Hilljack House has given me the drive to do the things I've needed to do so that I can be the best me possible. I'm beyond grateful for all they have done for me.
