Opportunities for New Beginnings and Hope – The Edinburg Center’s Winter Appeal
There are opportunities for new beginnings and hope for the future, according to Alexandra – a person served by The Edinburg Center. Alexandra had not worked for 14 years. She struggled with deep depression and agoraphobia. She found it difficult to communicate with others and developed unhealthy and challenging relationships. Alexandra stated that “Coming to The Edinburg Center’s Opportunities Day Treatment Program gave me something to do at first. The staff encouraged me to live my life in the way I really wanted to and supported my efforts to participate in variety of programs. I tried to move forward through a lot of fear and anxiety and tried new things”.
Since Alexandra took this first step, she has mastered many of the activities and tasks that she once struggled with. Through her perseverance, strength, bravery and kindness, as well as inspiration from her family and fiancée, Alexandra is now working in the community. She loves her job and is also looking forward to getting married in the future. In Alexandra’s words: “Wow – I am doing this. I am so happy. This is amazing!”
As you can see from Alexandra’s story, she discovered a new found hope and belief in herself so that she could grow and work again, a goal that once felt impossible to her.
