Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.

MIKE HELMER

Executive Director

Randy’s House was borne out of a need in my life for structure, purpose, and accountability. I had been in and out of treatment centers for the better part of my adult life which put me in a unique position to understand where the need was for people in recovery. I hope with Randy’s House we can continue to reduce stigma within communities, work a plan for the individual, reintegrate addicts in to happy healthy lives, and give back when we can.

Bobbi S. Foley, cprc

Director of Recovery Coach and intake operations; Certified Peer Recovery Coach

Recovery has been my primary goal since October 28, 2014. I became an alcoholic at a very young age which caused my life to become unmanageable in many different aspects. I lived in isolation for the last 7 years of my addiction and I developed severe depression and anxiety. My physical and mental health suffered greatly as I self-medicated with alcohol on a daily basis. One day I woke to the gift of desperation. Knowing I could no longer keep living the life of an untreated alcoholic, I sought out a residential treatment center and was given a recovery coach.  I also received a lot of support from the AA fellowship. I have now restored many broken relationships and become a healthy strong woman who wakes up every day clean and sober. l look forward to continuing to be the best mom, grandmother and spouse I can be.

Lori Hackett, PRC

Intake Specialist/Coordinator; Peer Recovery Coach

My name is Lori Hackett. I am 58-years old and have been an active alcoholic most of my life. After several attempts to quit drinking on my own, and a handful of treatment facilities; my son and future daughter-in-law found Randy's House. I arrived scared, apprehensive and despondent with no hope for my recovery. But I jumped into the program as I considered it to be my last chance to live. I embraced the tools and knowledge that I acquired from therapy, meetings, groups, and the people in the program who I have come to know and love. I am now the Director of Community Outreach and Volunteer Operations, House Manager in the women's house and the Intake Specialist and Coordinator for those coming in to the program. Just as I had. I love both what I do, and the peers who surround me every day.
