“At GLAD House, I learned that empathy in action is compassion.” – Jessie, client, age 9
“With my kids at GLAD House, I had time to focus on my recovery program. GLAD House helped my girls understand what I was going through; why I was behaving the way I was. It also helped their grades at school. Seven years later, I am still clean and sober, and the girls are doing well.” – Violet, parent
“I am not aware of any other program that provides such comprehensive service for children whose mothers are in residential treatment. The children learn self-control, how to be more attentive in school, and how to participate positively in school and community activities. GLAD House does wonderful work, and with proper funding, they could do even more.” – Margo Spence, Executive Director, The First Step Home
“I like volunteering for this unique organization because I feel we are really having a positive impact. To keep kids from following in the footsteps of parents who abuse drugs…what could be more beneficial?” – David Lindner, GLAD House Board Member and long-time volunteer
