Emma Norton Residence


Jennifer in her new apartment.


Jennifer was trying to forget...

Hoping to drown out painful memories of abuse, Jennifer began drinking at 9 years old. By 13, she was using drugs, and at 16, she attended her first Alcoholics Anonymous meeting. Time after time, she repeated the cycle of treatment, temporary housing, and short-term sobriety. Jennifer’s attempts to change her life were defeated as anxiety and trauma from her abuse surfaced and triggered her to relapse.

It wasn’t until Jennifer was referred to Emma Norton Services that she found the support she needed to make lasting changes and move forward successfully. After living at Emma Norton Residence for 16 months, Jennifer is now sober, attending college, and living in her own apartment. This November, she will host Thanksgiving with her family for the very first time.

Jennifer is just one of the 200 people who walk through our doors every year.
