A new home means a fresh start for women like Jenna Waller.

"If it weren't for this program and Miss Penny, I don't know where I'd be today," she says.

For 13 years, Waller was addicted. "Methamphetamine and cocaine," Waller says. "That took a really bad hold on me and drove me deep down."

She's a part of Angels in Flight, a drug and alcohol rehabilitation program for women located in Wrightsville. 

About 50 volunteers painted the walls and installed a new roof onto the rehab center that was once a funeral home.

"The roof had a lot of leaks in it," says Gary Hargis of Mustard Seed Ministries.

"People from Washington County, Sandersville, people from all over different church communities came together," says Shannon Anderson of Sunbelt Vending LLS. He provided funding for the new roof.

Angels in Flight started as a personal journey. Founders, Penny and Wesley Foskey, are also survivors with a similar story.

"I ended up losing everything I had. Just four years ago I was homeless. It's a great experience to have that transition in our lives," says Wesley.

They're using their success to reach others through this program. 

"It started in our home. Two women came to us through our church. God told us to start this program of recovery and become incorporated," Penny says.

Six women live in the home already, but the house can hold up to 20 residents.

"We are a family here," Waller says.

Jenna has been clean for 5 months and says she hopes her story can help others.
