Hunger In America

1 in 7 Americans need Food Assistance programs

Although too many Americans the economy appears to be stronger now and more people are back at work the reality for many families is just the opposite. 1 in 7, over 14% or to put it another way over 50 million Americans are relying on assistance just to eat. Many individuals and families who were struck hard by the recession are simply being left behind. They are all turning to programs like The Quinn House in order to feed themselves and their families. The Quinn House staff and guests spend most of their work week fulfilling requests for food assistance. We would like to do more, to help more however we need more help from the community in the form of monetary donations and canned/non-perishable food drives. If you or your organization can help us meet this great need please call our office at (770) 962-0470. Please see this report from National Geographic Daily News for more information.

Our Recovery Program

Instead of a more traditional program that treats addiction as a disease, we adhere to the belief that addiction is a choice-based disorder.  In other words, if you continually make the same choices, they eventually become part of your automatic or habitual behavior. The key word here is choice. Webster defines “choice” as the act of selecting; the power of choosing or that you have options. We can’t deny that alcohol and drugs affect the mind, body, and spirit.  Once addicted you must address all three.

The Quinn House Difference

I recently had a discussion with one of our past guests. We talked about how his life had turned around since he left the Quinn House and the role we had played in his new found success. I was quite taken by the excitement in his voice, as he explained the difference in his new attitude.  He stated that he had received more than just a second chance.  

 He had been through treatment before, believing that was enough, but now he realized the need to focus and implement the principles he had learned. He said that this time he truly understands what recovery is all about.  He has changed the way he thinks, feels and responds to  things and has put his life's priorities in order.  “Life” he said, “is Difficult, but Life is Good”
