While attending a meeting and listening to current and future plans of Choosing Integrity, I was intrigued by the board members when I witnessed the dedication and passion everyone has to help those who need healing and support while transitioning back into the community. I wanted to be a part of this process. When offered to be a board member of Choosing Integrity, there was no doubt in my mind after seeing for myself what a great organization this is and the commitment from the people behind it.
