The Lord will guide you always;
he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land
and will strengthen your frame.
You will be like a well-watered garden,
like a spring whose waters never fail.
Isaiah 58:11 New International Version (NIV)
Thank you to everyone who came to our June 10 open house! Since June 10 is Will Bright's birthday, it was a fitting occasion to show our supporters what progress we are making toward helping others break all barriers to addiction. It was a wonderful afternoon, and we enjoyed meeting folks from the Fayette community, as well as the Birmingham Area!
Thanks to the generosity of Mrs. Lillian Kirkley, we now have a permanent location! She has generously donated her 126 acre farm in Fayette, Alabama, which features three cabins, a stocked fish pond, and a picnic pavilion. The town of Fayette has been very supportive of our goal. With the support of the city, we will have assistance arranging for jobs and job training for our residents! After three years of searching for the right location, we are so excited to have a permanent home for the Will Bright Foundation! The possibilities are endless!
Restoration Springs is a secondary recovery facility for men who have already successfully completed an initial recovery program. They will learn job skills, crucial life skills, and leave the program equipped to lead a successful life free from the bonds of addiction!
