Randy’s House Rules

 
The Randy’s House story follows a path very much like that of the recovering addict. The beginning was full of anguish and turmoil. Then, in the dark, a spark of understanding and direction. Each spark, each decision, came together to form a flame. Then a light. Then a beacon. And like a flame, our shape is always changing. We will warm some, guide some, and frighten some. But right here is where we will be when you need us most.
