It was 8 p.m. on a Monday night in April when Sarah Sikich made the phone call that would change her life.

She was in the midst of her recovery steps to get clean from alcoholism, but needed somewhere new to live. Somewhere safe, tucked away, with the tools to help her get sober and stay there.

    I used to live around the corner from this home. It was always a well kept & quiet piece of property. This is such a worthwhile establishment that it would be disgraceful to see it go under. With unemployment and economic woes putting even the most affluent individuals into a tailspin, a loving structured homefront makes all the difference in the world if you're walking the tightrope of sobriety. EVERYONE needs a hand up at one point in their lives. Mothers are, across the board, number one on the list of worthwhile individuals. Any contribution we can make would only improve our community as a whole.

    Let's all work together to keep Meadows Depot alive.

    "A Woman’s Heart Ministries" sounds like a good solution. Let's hope this gets done quickly.
