Over a span of forty years, Cindy tried again and again to get sober. Stints in rehab would help her stay clean for several months, but an ongoing battle with depression made relapses seem inevitable. Though she’d been raised a pagan, Cindy tried to find sobriety in a Christian rehabilitation center, but was eventually turned out because of her sexuality. She was at the end of her rope, homeless and suicidal, when a long-time friend told her about the Harbor Light Center, assuring Cindy that if they could find a way to get her in, this would be the place that could finally save her. Thanks to a grant from Cops On The Street (COTS), Cindy was able to check into the Harbor Light Center in October 2015.
