The Healing Place has an amazing reputation in Metro Louisville, the Commonwealth of Kentucky, and across the country. Our best ambassadors are our alumni. One amazing example is Audrey Webster.
Audrey came to The Healing Place in 2012. “I was at the lowest point in my life,” says Audrey. “I owe my very life to the Women’s Healing Place. They took me in, fed me, clothed me, and provided shelter until I had completed all 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous and I was ready to face the world again.”
Audrey has worked at Humana since 2013 and is a Customer Care Specialist. She is also Humana’s 2015 Volunteer of the Year. This year, Audrey logged 169 volunteer hours in the Humana Volunteer Network. For being named Volunteer of the Year, she received a $10,000 grant to donate to the organization of her choice. Her choice: The Healing Place.
“Receiving the Volunteer of the Year award for 2015 has been such an honor. It is a privilege to be an employee at Humana and their belief is giving back to our community makes us better employees,” Audrey says.
“I was taught that giving back is what continues to keep me sober and sober minded,” Audrey says. Every month she teaches 3pm class at the Women’s Campus. “To see these ladies grow in becoming the women God always intended them to be is very rewarding and heartwarming. When I see the light come on, my heart and soul glow!” Audrey is also helping her son Mark and his church (Memorial Methodist Church in Elizabethtown) with the church’s 3-month-old recovery program.
“The Healing Place saved my life not once, but several times and for those gifts I am truly humbled and grateful.”
