Volunteers of America graduate Amy Kalber spent years struggling with her addiction, but today, she has been sober for more than five years after receiving Volunteers of America's life-saving services at Freedom House. Amy, who is now working towards a social work degree at the University of Louisville and was the keynote speaker at our 2016 Power of 1 Breakfast, shared with attendees that during her recovery, Volunteers of America helped her rediscover who she is as a person at her deepest core.
"I showed up to Volunteers of America completely broken. I didn't know who I was, if anything could be salvaged. I had no idea that I had just been placed exactly where I needed to be.
"I can stand up with complete pride and tell each and every one of you that today, I am a productive member of society who finally gives more than she takes, and I work with others in the hopes of passing this kind of life on. This is my story because Volunteers of America answered my call."
