Need Help?Jesus Is The Answer!
Society says “once an addict, always an addict”, but Jesus says “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.”
The Men’s Home and the Women’s Home both offer a free six-month recovery program for the substance abuser who has a desire to change. The Victory Home provides an opportunity to establish a personal relationship with Jesus Christ through the Biblical principles of love, authority, supervision, and discipline. In a family atmosphere, a new sense of identity, security, responsibility, and unconditional acceptance is cultivated, while a person’s character begins to change.
Inspiring them to achieve against the odds, the Home fights the common myth, “Once an addict, always an addict.” Through the services provided, the down-and-out rejects of society turn into productive members that are able accomplish extraordinary things to improve their lives while helping others at the same time. While many of the residents come from dysfunctional backgrounds, the ministry aims to heal past wounds, reverse years of neglect, restore the proper role in the family, and nurture a man or woman spiritually and into maturity of character. Our ministry accepts its commission to “go ye” with great conviction; reaching out and dealing with society and inner cities’ most pressing people problems, evangelism becomes a lifestyle.

I am 40 years old, and originally from the Eastside of Fort Worth, TX. I started associating with the wrong crowd at an early age, which led to a life of drug addiction, gang violence and sin. This lifestyle eventually led to a 10-year sentence in the penitentiary, away from those I dearly loved…but that lifestyle didn’t stop there. I wound up getting hooked on crack cocaine, a drug that took over my life even more as I kept getting deeper and deeper into the addiction. This led me to come to the Victory Home and grow closer to God. I have bow been here at the Home for over a year, serving Jesus Christ, helping others to change and living a spiritual
life. I can’t see myself doing anything else. Thank you Jesus for the Victory Home, because it changed my life forever.
I come from a long line of drugs, alcoholism, and abuse. I started drinking alcohol before the age of five. By the time I was a teenager I knew that I was an alcoholic. When I turned sixteen I started using illegal drugs. I have been in and out of jail, psychiatrists, rehabs, counselors… everything trying to change. I lost scholarships, my wife, all confidence and self-respect. I have overdosed, been in ICU with ventilators breathing for me, given my self pancreatitis, gone through delirious tremors, and numerous seizures.When I had completely given up, and my only thought was suicide, I was taken to the Victory Home. I was very opposed to Christianity, but wanted to believe there was such a thing as love and hope. It was here that Jesus stole my heart. I am now the praise and worship leader, and God uses me to reach others.
