The Delta Kappa Gamma women teachers group invited a Portage Atlantic representative and program graduate to speak about the Portage program at their Spring Conference in Fredericton on June 2. The DKG members were visibly moved by the graduate’s story as she shared her deepest moments of pain as a young mother of two battling a severe, life-shattering addiction to drugs.
Having recently celebrated her one year anniversary of sobriety, Kelsey attributed her return to health to the Portage residential program and its ongoing aftercare support. The Delta Kappa Gamma members applauded the young woman’s inspirational turn-around with a standing ovation. They presented a $300 donation to Portage for educational pursuits at Cassidy Lake.
