Ruth's Way for Women has been blessed with extremely generous supporters. Over the past several months we have received several grants, continuous support from local houses of worship, and many individuals. Every donation benefits the women whom we serve.
We would like to thank all of the volunteers who have shared messages of hope with the women in our sober home. During this time of limited connection with others many have reached out to role model recovery. They have shared their time and experiences that reinforce the knowledge that recovery is possible.
