Why I Serve at Gaudenzia:
I believe deeply in the dignity of every individual, and their right to live a healthy and productive life. We change lives every day at Gaudenzia, restoring dignity, improving health, and providing hope for those suffering from substance use disorders and mental health challenges. By supporting individuals and their families, we can break the devastating cycle of addiction. I have witnessed how Gaudenzia’s full continuum of care provides the foundation for successful recovery for our clients and their families.
