“Joseph & Carmin met in January of 2001 in a recovery home in Sacramento, California.Carmin had left her native home of Washington to start over and Joseph had just finished 7 years in the California penal system. Their similar stories disclose hopelessness, emptiness, jails and institutions, to recovery and new hope.”
“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. Four homes comfortably house up to 36 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, peer support and a strong recovery community rebuild mind, body, and soul. It is our desire that residents find new hope, self respect, dignity and the tools needed to live life on lifes terms 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.
