To Ms. Bonds and all the Bobby Bonds Foundation,

Here at Recovery on Reed, we want to thank the foundation very much for all the support that you guys have given us. We have a high demand for brothers and sisters seeking help without money or anything. Helping others without anything like myself when I came in is in my heart and the ones that help us help others. I have seen personally the lives that your foundation is helping. It makes it a lot easier for an addict that gets a scholarship from your organization to not be so stressed and worried. Especially since COVID hit these funds helped so many. I’m personally very grateful that there are good places like yours that support us and willing to help others.

Thank you very much,

B. B. and all of ROR.

Good Afternoon,

My name is Alicia P. I’m 33 years old and I have three children who are together with a foster family in Lancaster, PA. In this past year since they have been out of my care, I went to four different treatment centers, I was able to stop using the amphetamines, but I kept returning to the suboxone. In July I left for treatment at Eagleville Hospital where I stayed for long-term treatment and was set up on SMT. I was discharged to Sunlight of the Spirit house on September 11th. By some divine miracle, I was accepted into this amazing recovery house with very little money. Within only a few weeks of being here, I have gotten a sponsor and begun to work the steps, I’ve started a part-time job at a cafe within walking distance of the house, I am going to Merakey for an outpatient program and individual therapy which I attend twice weekly and I’m learning a lot of simple life skills. I feel more optimistic than ever about my future and incredibly humbled by the opportunity for assistance in my debt to this house. Anything to help me along this path only leads me closer to my children and for this, I am eternally grateful to even be considered. So again, I just want to say thank you, in advance, for your time and consideration.

Warmest Regards,

Alicia P.

Dear Bobby Bonds Foundation,

My name is Armando and I am the recipient of a housing scholarship. It is important to me that you know what kind of impact your gift has had on me and on my family as well. Without you, I wouldn’t have had a place to go after I left Blue Crest. Because of your love and support, I was able to enjoy Easter Sunday with my family. We had a great time and although the day had to come to an end, it felt very good for both myself and my family, knowing that I had a safe and comfortable house to return to.

Thank you,

Armando P.

Dear Bobby Bonds Foundation,

I am writing to you in an effort to express to you my gratitude for providing me with the means necessary to build upon the foundation of my recovery. Each step that I take towards getting my life back on track encourages me to continue on this new path of sobriety and hope. There have been obstacles that I’ve had to overcome and I’m very much aware that there will be many more to come. At times, fear of the unknown can be intimidating. With the first phase of treatment nearing its completion, I was met with feelings of fear and anxiety as it pertained to the next step. I, like many others, wasn’t prepared to support myself financially. Your generous donation allowed me one less thing to concern myself with and therefore, maintain focus solely on continuing to better myself while abstaining from the use of drugs and alcohol. I feel like myself for the first time in a long time and I hope that receiving this letter sheds some light on just how big of an impact your generosity has had on me.

Thank you,

Meredith M.

Bobby Bonds Foundation,

My name is M., I am 24 years-old, and a recovering drug addict. My drug of choice was fentanyl.

I would love to become a resident of Emilie House in Levittown, PA. Their rent is $180 per week, but first and last week’s rent is up front. I cannot currently afford this due to losing my job from COVID, but living here requieres obtaining employment quickly, which is also something I believe would be very good for me.

Also, being around sober support, especially women, would greatly impact my recovery. They would always be there during tough times and would be able to help me and give me advice from their own personal experiences.

Lastly, working a program such as NA or AA has always been extremely valuable to my recovery. Going to 90 meetings in 90 days, having a sponsor, and working the steps are all requirements to stay here. This is the formula I believe will help me to succeed in my recovery.

I would love another chance at life, and believe this house is my best shot at getting one. Hopefully, you will consider me for this grant and I will do everything I can to get it right this time.

Thank you so much,

M. H.

Bobby Bonds Foundation:

Thank you for the opportunity to be able to come to Another Day Clean with a scholarship. This gives me time to get my plans in order and find a job. I appreciate the chance I have got to start a new way of life in a strong recovery community. Without your foundation, I may not have been here. Again, thank you for the opportunity to be able to come to the recovery house.

The time has helped me a lot.

Thank you,

B. F.

Dear Bobby Bonds Foundation,

I hope that I can put into words how much your foundation has helped me in my recovery process. I don’t know where I would be without you, both geographically and progressively. I’m in a great place physically, emotionally and spiritually. If it weren’t for you, I don’t think I’d be authoring a letter like this. The sober house has been such an integral part of recovery thus far and I’m looking forward to continued sobriety and happiness here. I have a job, regular contact with my family and most importantly, supreme hope and optimism! Your gift will continue to give as I will work as hard as possible to ensure that I stay on my current path.

Thank you,

Eliana M.

Dear Bobby Bonds Foundation,

I honestly don’t know where to begin. I am a young mother who has struggled with alcohol and drug abuse issues for some time now. I have attempted to straighten my life out on more than one occasion in the past but haven’t been successful in those attempts at maintaining sobriety. As a result of that, I haven’t been the mother that I’ve always wanted to be. I haven’t made the wisest decisions when it came to continued care, until now. Part of my decision making process was due to a lack of resources. This time, you provided the resources, which made my decision very easy. I’m happy to report to you that I’m actively looking for employment and that I’m also involved in my child’s life. Your donation made all of that possible and it means the world to me!

Forever grateful,

Gianna F.

Dear Bobby Bonds Foundation,

I can’t thank you enough for this amazing opportunity you have provided me with. Your kindness has changed my life already. I have finally after a long time found a place to live that I can call my home. I’m surrounded by true love and support, which I haven’t had in years. You have blessed me with the chance to finally begin my new life – SOBER.

this foundation is so important and special to so many people. You are changing so many lives, mine especially. If I didn’t get this opportunity I would have been homeless. I am so thankful for Another Day Clean and the Bobby Bonds Foundation. Thank you for giving me a new shot at life. I am forever grateful.

Dear Ronna Bonds of the Bobby Bonds Foundation,

My name is Bryan C. I am a 32-year-old resident of Montgomery County and I am a grateful recovering addict and alcoholic. I currently reside in the North Wales house owned by Sunlight of the Spirit. Since the age of 16, I have struggled with alcohol and drug addiction. In 2012 I was charged with my 3 rd DUI in Montgomery County—three DUI(s) in four years. I was 25 years old. Throughout the years I’ve tried to get clean and sober through the different programs while living with my wife. I have not been successful. While in treatment this last time I lost my job which I loved due to my addiction. During our family session, my wife and I agreed that going to a Recovery House was perhaps what I needed to be successful. Since being at Sunlight of the Spirit I have come to realize that my disease is rooted in self-centered fear. I have gained a sponsor, I attend meetings daily, and have been taking the necessary steps to find full-time employment. My plan moving forward is to make my recovery my number one priority. Thank you so much for all the people you have helped through your Foundation—it has done more than you could possibly know for several men I have met recently.

I would like to thank you very much for the scholarship you have granted me. With this scholarship, it gave me the opportunity to find a job in order for me to get back on my feet but most importantly, it provided me with a place to stay where I get to experience true recovery. By receiving this scholarship, it helped me meet a great group of guys in the house as well as my sponsor. I have been granted true peace of mind and profund happiness wihtoug having to take substances anymore. Being able to wake up sober each and everyday surrounded by great people is a blessing, especially knowing I don’t ever have to go back to the dark life I was living before. Recovery means everything to me knowing that I can be a success story rather than a statistic. I think it is amazing what you guys do and I am truly blessed to have been a candidate.



Dear Bobby Bonds Foundation,

Words can’t express how thankful I am that in a time of need, you foundation was there to offer support. This, as I’m sure you know, is an extremely critical time for me. I am very much dedicated to starting a new way of life and I haven’t yet mastered the art of reaching out for help. I wasn’t quite sure how I was going to pay for housing, knowing that the best option would be that of a sober living environment. While difficult to admit, I need all the help that I can get in order to maintain my sobriety and to repair some of the damage that I caused to myself and others while struggling with substance abuse. Your donation provided me with an opportunity to continue to get my life back together in an atmosphere most conducive to recovery. For that, I will always be grateful!
