Central City Concerns Community Volunteer Corps helps recovering addicts

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Chelsea Donnor said she struggled with drug and alcohol addiction for the better part of 20 years. It wasn’t until last year she was ready to get clean.

“I just hit a spiritual low that I was willing and desperate to do whatever was suggested to me through the mentor program,” she told KOIN 6 News. “They gave me a safe place to stay. The requirements were go to meetings, community service, and intensive outpatient. And there were folks that believed in me when I really didn’t believe in myself.”
