ROCKFORD (WREX) – Tuesday was graduation day at the Rockford Rescue Mission.
The organization honored 11 graduates of its Life Recovery Program during a Restoration Celebration. The 9 -12 month program helps participants overcome addictions and equips them with education, work readiness and confidence to help them become members of the community. Each graduate got a certificate of completion to celebrate their accomplishment.
“This is an awesome program,” said Twylla Ross, who is a graduate of the mission’s Women’s Life Recovery Program. “You meet people in here who love you just because you’re you. And if you surrender, you’ll be able to make it.”
