Letter: Capstone offers new life to women in crisis

When you have a problem, seek out a solution. That is Capstone Recovery Center’s specialty. Because of God’s amazing grace, this center has become a faith-based, multi-phased, residential, therapeutic and vocational program offering housing, shelter, clothing and sustenance to women of the community. Capstone also offers a nonresidential program as well as functioning as a general human-service center for women.

God has allowed me to participate in the miracle of transformation by volunteering. It is through getting to know these women that I have gained a true respect for their struggles and their desire, with God’s help, to change their life trajectory. Each woman has a different story touched with heartache. But, as the caterpillar emerges as a beautiful butterfly, so do the women of Capstone. The women also participate in the community by helping others get a hand up.

Where addiction, abuse, low self-esteem, relationship issues, release from prison and homelessness have infected Salisbury, Capstone works alongside God to help become a healing balm.

On Saturday, Feb. 3, Capstone is having a fundraiser, “You Are Precious in His Eyes,” from 2 to 6 p.m. at the Country Club of Salisbury. It will cost $25. Everyone is invited. Good music, moving testimonies from the women, a silent auction and great fellowship will be enjoyed

So, when people talk about the opioid crisis, the hatefulness of our society, the problem of homelessness, you can be part of the solution by “doing something.” Come and visit Capstone Recovery Center at 418 W. Innes St. and see what the Lord has done. For more information, please contact Miriam Ramirez, executive director, at 704-749-0797.
