Success Story

Jeff's Story

Jeff first came to Orana House to sober up but stayed with us for a few weeks after. During this time he was able to reconnect with his ex-partner and his son and he started volunteering at Morton’s Place.

Jeff started seeking counselling for his alcohol abuse and attending church. The second chance to be a responsible father gave him renewed energy to make positive life choices.

Not long after moving into one of Orana’s longer term units, Jeff was offered a transitional unit in the community with his family by another service provider. He saw this as an opportunity to further develop his relationship with his partner and son as well as continue to receive support.

Jeff continued to help out in Morton’s Place after leaving Orana House as he valued the opportunity to give back after the support he was given.

Orana has helped me get healthier, physically and mentally, and for that I say thank you.
