    La Santana Scholarship
    I struggle with mental health and addiction, and not long ago, I was homeless and struggled with the ability to get the help that I so desperately needed. I have been diagnosed with borderline personality, bipolar, depression, substance abuse, and generalized anxiety disorders, as well as PTSD and ADHD. I see a psych as well as a mental health counselor regularly and am also taking medication to address my diagnoses as directed. I give attention to all aspects of my health to be able to function efficiently and to the best ability. I want to be able to make a difference in the lives of those struggling with mental health, addiction, and homelessness. I want to be able to help people who are in need. I aim to be an advocate and a social worker dedicated to helping addicts, homeless people, and those with mental health diagnoses. I want these people to feel safe and able to help themselves. It is essential for people who are less fortunate, struggling, and with mental health issues to know there is a way to better their circumstances. I love being able to provide the necessary resources to help those who deserve to be cared for and to point them in the direction they need to be. For the world to be a better place, I believe that helping addicts, the homeless, and people with mental health diagnoses and allowing them access to resources that could help them can be essential. I would love to run my very own non-profit organization dedicated to providing the less fortunate with everything essential that they need to be successful and to allow them to get on their feet. The resources I would make sure are available would be not limited to food, housing, job opportunities, toiletries, government assistance, residential treatment, counseling, medical assistance and attention, medication, support groups, education, and shelter. Letting people know that they are not discriminated against and shunned by the general public may give them the motivation and confidence to help themselves and to know that there are options for them to create a better life and circumstance for themselves. With the support of myself and volunteers who would like to provide their time and patience to create a bond with people who need a safe place to come to and people they can confide in and trust to make sure they can receive whatever assistance they need, we can open the doors to creating a bridge of companionship and opportunity. It fills my heart with hope and complete satisfaction to know that I can do something to help someone who needs it and feels like they are stuck in a world of dire helplessness. People deserve every chance to be better people every day than they were yesterday. I have learned that to push forward and persevere, you must accept accountability and seek guidance to help yourself mentally, physically, and emotionally in all aspects of your life so that you can strive to succeed and triumph over all obstacles. Being the best version of yourself requires overcoming your downfalls and being open-minded and willing to do whatever it takes to show your true potential and become a respectable, responsible, and productive member of society. The sky is the limit, and the possibilities are endless. Lost dreams awaken and new possibilities arise when you can apply what you learn about taking control of your mental, physical, and emotional health and having the chance to evolve into a better version of yourself.
    Lost Dreams Awaken Scholarship
    My name is Jackie and I am an addict. I have been in and out of the rooms of Narcotics Anonymous for three years, and a year ago I finally decided to do something different. Before, I was just filling a seat in the rooms and was not applying the tools of this program to every aspect of my life. I was not working a program of recovery. This time around, I have gotten a sponsor, am working the steps, and am being of service to give away what was so freely given to me. I live one day at a time and ask my Higher Power to help me do the next right thing and to stay clean just for today. I share my experience, strength, and hope with the newcomers and take suggestions to the best of my ability. Making recovery the most important thing in my life helps strengthen my foundation and allows me to have all the blessings that I have in my life today. The program of Narcotics Anonymous has taught me how to be an acceptable, responsible, and productive member of society today.

    Elijah's Helping Hand Scholarship Award
    I struggle with mental health and addiction, and not long ago, I was homeless and struggled with the ability to get the help that I so desperately needed. I was diagnosed with ADHD, bipolar, borderline, anxiety, and depression. It took me ten years to feel comfortable talking to a psych and counselor about my mental health. I want to be able to make a difference in the lives of those struggling with mental health, addiction, and homelessness. I want to be able to help people who are in need. I aim to be an advocate and a social worker dedicated to helping addicts, homeless people, and those with mental health diagnoses. I want these people to feel safe and able to help themselves. It is essential for people who are less fortunate, struggling, and with mental health issues to know that there is a way to better their circumstances. I love being able to provide the necessary resources to help those who deserve to be cared for and to point them in the direction they need to be. In order for the world to be a better place, I believe that helping addicts, the homeless, and people with mental health diagnoses and allowing them to have access to resources that could help them can be essential. I would love to run my very own non-profit organization dedicated to providing the less fortunate with everything essential that they need in order to be successful and to allow them to get on their feet. The resources I would make sure are available would be not limited to food, housing, job opportunities, toiletries, government assistance, residential treatment, counseling, medical assistance and attention, medication, support groups, education, and shelter. Letting people know that they are not discriminated against and shunned by the general public may give them the motivation and confidence to help themselves and to know that there are options for them to create a better life and circumstance for themselves. With the support of myself and volunteers who would like to provide their time and patience in order to create a bond with people who need a safe place to come to and people they can confide in and trust to make sure they can receive whatever assistance they need, we can open the doors to creating a bridge of companionship and opportunity. It fills my heart with hope and complete satisfaction to know that I can do something to help someone who really needs it and feels like they are stuck in a world of dire helplessness. People deserve every chance to be better people every day than they were yesterday.
