GOOD THINGS ARE HAPPENING:
"After being released from the Mower County jail, Maria came to Recovery Is Happening for recovery support. She moved into our Join Our Journey recovery housing home. She was pregnant; her older child had been taken from her by the state due to her substance use disorder. After four months in sober living, with peer support thanks to the United Way of Mower County, she was reunited with her older son and her Child Protection Services case was closed. She got a job at Hormel and moved into her own apartment with her nine year old son, ready to welcome her new baby."
