'Before I knew the Jericho Road Project I was chaotic with drug use, working the streets being harrassed and abused. I was 28 years old when I started using heroin and crack, the sex work was to pay for the drugs. I came to know Jericho Road from working and seeing the outreach van about 2 years ago. Since knowing the project my life has changed dramatically, I'm not as chaotic, not using drugs and stable on methadone. They give me support, talk and pray for me...
...When I came out of prison they gave me clothing, underwear, massive food parcels, toiletries and a birthday present. If they hadn't given me these essentials I would have been walking around in the clothes I left prison in and I would have had nothing.' * All names have been changed
