- In Memoriam – BALWAN
“I found a great sponsor from the Gooden Center alumni, and we are vigorously working the 12 steps. Gooden Center is an anchor in my life – a vital part of my recovery.”
- Adam H.
“Bishop Gooden Home has offered me the perfect environment for establishing a solid foundation of recovery. I came to BG because I was about to relapse again and I felt this was my only hope of avoiding disaster. Now I am enthusiastic again about attending A.A. and G.A. meetings, working the steps, having a sponsor and praying for strength from a power greater than myself. Thank you “BG” from the bottom of my heart.”
- Randy J.
“Before, I had no friends. People didn’t want anything to do with me. Today I can walk proud and look people in the eye, while speaking the truth. Today I have serenity.”
- James N.
