This Vivian lady that is the assistant director at Maggie's house completely lacks empathy & compassion for the alcoholic women she is supposed to be there to support. Never does a kind word leave her lips, criticism and degradation are her means of communication. Ladies that come to this place for help have already been criticized and judged by everyone else in their life, we're responsible to show these women ""A better way of life"" how is that happening with the ridicule and dishonesty of this woman?
As I continue to pray for the women at the house I hope someone reads this that can help these woman be rid of this Vivian!

The Ed Keating Center is a rehab. center that takes in any male regardless of their ability to pay. They can be a homeless man right off the street, and they will give them a home, 3 square meals a day, cloth them with donated items, help them find a job, get them sober, make them go to 4 group meetings a day and get their life back on track. The guys are required to also go to AA meetings daily. They do not take government assistance, and live off of the kindness of private donors and area businesses who provide leftover food for the guys to eat.. Yes, they have many who will relapse and need to come back, but as the owner and operator says, ""they will never turn a guy away who needs help getting off until 5 seconds before they take there last dying breath."" It is all up to the men who go there to really want to change and a lot of them do. With the help of the EKC center, they get that chance. They can get rides from those who are able to drive, or from the EKC van to get to and from work, court visits, etc. They also provide 3/4 assistance at several locations where the guys pay a small amount to live there after completing the program, but feed them still. They have also started a women's house called Maggie's House.
