INTRODUCING YELM’S TRULY MOTIVATED TRANSITIONAL LIVING
“Truly Motivated Transitional Living is a non-profit organization in Yelm, Washington offering affordable clean and sober housing to men & women in recovery from drugs and alcohol.
Joseph & Carmin both have hard fought experiences in the rooms of recovery, with over six years of sobriety each. Their similar stories disclose hopelessness, emptiness, jails and institutions, to recovery and new hope. Page 100 of Alcoholics Anonymous states both you and the new man must walk day by day in the path of spiritual progress. If you persist remarkable things will happen. Joseph and Carmin have set out to create a community where people in recovery can walk that walk.In 2005, Truly Motivated Transitional Living opened to address a significant community need for transitional living facilities. Situated in the quiet community of Yelm, Washington, it is well positioned to serve the South Puget Sound region. Three homes comfortably house up to 24 residents in a rural, park-like setting, offering the serenity of country living. A clean and sober environment offers encouragement and accountability. Nutritious food, on-site 12-step meetings and support services rebuild mind, body, and soul. It is our desire that residents find new hope, self respect, and dignity in addition to sustained sobriety. Residents may stay with the Truly Motivated family as long as they wish, gaining the confidence to go from here into a victorious life. A womens facility is planned for 2008,” quoting their website.
The Yelm Starbucks is selling raffle tickets for one dollar each for a Starbucks Gift Basket through Saturday, August 23rd. All proceeds will benefit Truly Motivated Transitional Living. This writer discovered this organization for the first time through the Starbucks raffle & asked about them.
Quoting Joe, “I want to thank Starbucks for their partnership and in particular, this store. They’ve just been great.”
