Testimonials

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,

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,

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!

Sincerely,

Emma O.

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.
