On October 13th, 606 guests came together and celebrated Transitions 20-year Anniversary! Guests celebrated at both a breakfast and a lunch. The keynote speaker was Stephanie Regalado, the editor of Spokane Coeur d’Alene Woman Magazine and co-founder of 100 Year Body. Her talk, and all other talks, focused on the importance and benefits of support systems both for Transitions and for all people.
Lyn Vital, an alumna of Miryam’s House shared her story. Lyn thought this was a great opportunity to share an unlikely story of homelessness. Lyn joined the Navy directly from high school after a rough upbringing highlighted by neglect. With no experience of chemical dependency or ongoing mental health issues – Lyn’s primary obstacles to stability were these early untreated experiences of trauma and being over-qualified for available work.
