Letters from people whose lives LifeNet has helped change.
June 1, 2009
My son, Scott Miller, entered the LifeNet program in January 2007. In addition to being bi-polar, Scott was addicted to methamphetamine and had been homeless for over three years; his addiction and mental health challenges date back to 1998.
Through the mental illness, substance abuse, housing and work programs offered by LifeNet, Scott has been provided the tools to regain his sobriety, self-esteem and independence. Two years ago, Scott could barely manage his life minute-to-minute; this morning he met with a guidance counselor at a junior college, taking his first step toward building a future.
I am a successful business owner - our company has launched some of the most important technology products of our time. I am an author - my stories, often chronicling Scott and my emotional journey, have been secured by Tyndale Publishing House for a woman's daily devotional that will launch in November 2009; 50% of my profits from the sale of the book will be gifted to LifeNet. But mostly, I'm just a mother - grateful for the programs and people of LifeNet who dedicate their professional lives to the care of those in need.
Thank you for investing in rebuilding the lives of those like my son, Scott. We greatly appreciate all you do for the indigent, mentally ill, homeless and unemployed in North Texas.
