We've been baking up a new website this summer and it's time to take it out of the oven! Please be patient as it's cooling and we get it ready for "delivery."

Meet Patty

Published July 12, 2016

Hello, my name is Patty. I’m a mother of three; I have four grandchildren, and two more grandchildren on the way. This is why it’s so important that I turn my life around because it’s not just me who’s been affected by my choices. It’s time I make the right choices, and be the Mother and Nana I need to be.

I’ve been an addict most of my life – once an addict, always an addict. But now I have been through a drug program, and I’m going to continue to reach out to whatever support groups I can. I know God isn’t going to put me in a situation I can’t handle.

I like all of Together We Bake. I used to cook a lot, but I stopped cooking with my addiction. I found out about the program through one of the case managers at Fairview Halfway House, where I am currently residing. I arrived at Fairview on a Thursday and immediately joined Together We Bake the following Tuesday.

Being a part of TWB has been very informative and very inspiring. It’s hard to say which part of the program is better than the others, but if I had to say, it would be all of the hands-on experience and group sessions.

I’m a hands-on person. While incarcerated, I learned how to crochet and draw. I’ve made infinity scarves, headbands, travel bags, and barefoot sandals.

After Together We Bake, I would like to pursue drawing because it’s been a passion of mine. I would also love to use my ServSafe certification to get involved in volunteer work like feeding the homeless and serving lunches at my church on Sundays.

I know I have obstacles ahead of me: age, health, background, and addiction, but I’m not going to let any of that stand in my way. You’ve got to learn from your mistakes. I know changing is going to be a challenge, and I’m more than ready for that. I know this journey wouldn’t be possible without God’s guidance.
