Faces of Those Who've Looked in Our Mirror
Meet one of our previous guests, Shelly Jones.
Shelly came to the Triangle House in December, 2015, and has now transitioned home back to Tennessee to stay with her parents. According to Rita Miller, “she came to WTRH ready to change who she was, the person she had become, mentally, physically and emotionally and become the woman God designed her to be, the daughter, the mother, the sister, and the aunt.”
Jones had a long history of being lost, on drugs and alcohol, and had been in and out of jail and institutions for years. She said she was hopeless, had not spoken to her family in almost two years and had not seen her three-year old daughter in almost a year.
Jones said she was back in jail on felony drug charges but in December, 2015 was assigned to rehab and sent to Triangle House. She said one of her most difficult transitions was learning how to abide by the house rules and live soberly.
But in true fighting form ,while at the WTRH, Jones did a complete turnaround. She has learned how to live right, become a responsible member of society and learned how to restore lost relationships.
