The Story of Esther...

“Remember who you are. Who knows but that you
were born for such a time as this.”
Esther 4:14

Esther was a beautiful woman who knew
loneliness and suffering. When faced with a
major crisis in her life, she remembered the
strong women who had gone before her.
For three days, she struggled alone in the depths
of her spirit. There she came face to face with a
power greater than herself that gave her courage
and direction. She felt her fear and at the same
time became aware of her strength and her
freedom to decide.

Esther was a woman who let herself be challenged
to move beyond where she was
to where she could be


“Since I’ve been at Esther House for three months my life has changed. I’ve learned to grow in myself, to live with others, to respect others. I’ve also found a job and I have never worked before in my life.”

“I was told that Esther House was a safe environment and that I would be giving myself the time I needed to heal. But I wasn’t told that Esther House was where the change from existing to living would occur.”

“Esther House has given me a new life of beginning for my children and me.”

“I have a fighting chance today because of Esther House. How do you thank those who have given you the greatest gift of all?”

“If it wasn’t for Esther House, I wouldn’t be sober. It has been a strong and stable support for my recovery.”

“Today I am back in my home town…I have my own apartment…I have my children with me…These are the miracles of recovery…Living at Esther House has saved my life.”
