Our Journey to Transform Lives

Our Origin

Rooted in Compassion and Need

In 1999, a group of dedicated citizens, ministers, and medical professionals came together with a shared concern: the lack of substance abuse programs in our rural community. Inspired by the legacy of Billy Ty Cattan, a local businessman who dedicated his life to helping others after his own recovery, our organization was born. Today, we stand as a testament to his passion and our collective commitment to change.
