Congrats Charles! #CSCDcares

Charles began community supervision as a high risk case, he was resistant during the first meeting with his CSO upon exiting the program and claimed that he didn’t have a substance abuse issue and asked his CSO if he just wanted to see him go to jail. CSO and counselor were able to build report with the Charles and he broke down his wall that he put up initially. Charles reported to his CSO that he learned coping skills in treatment which has led to him not picking up another case for assault. Upon completing treatment the client was tearful in regards to the progress he has made and was tearful about the positive things going on in his life.

"Hey there! How are you? I hope you and your family have been safe and blessed during all this craziness! This has definitely been a growing time for me! It's scary actually because I've seen alot of people around me with substantial clean time go back out and some have even died. That kinda stuff shook me, like that's what could happen to me if I go back out there, it only takes one time, one I'm only gonna do it one time, to get the wrong drug and die. Drugs are not what they used to be, they're killing people everyday! It gets me wanting to do something more for the community and bringing awareness to the kids, I talk to my 14 year old all the time about drugs and tell him that it only takes one time and you could die. I'm doing well though, over 7 months clean and actually I have recently hit a new stage in my recovery. So I was hospitalized for 3 days for a kidney infection, and even though I was in enormous amounts of pain I refused any narcotic pain medication they were offering, that was tough but I just kept my faith in God that He would get me through it, it was a really bad infection and I was at one point almost put into ICU because my blood pressure was plummeting the lowest it got was 87/50, that's a very dangerous level and can cause heart attack and other life threatening issues, but it was in my weakest moments in there when God told me that I need to be taking care of my body. I realized I had been doing great with not putting drugs or alcohol in my body, but I wasn't taking care of myself, so since being released 2 weeks ago I have completely cut off stinking caffeinated drinks, (that was hard!!!) I only drink water now, and I even got a juicer and a nutribullet to add fruit and veggies to my diet, I'm also on the nicotine patch now to quit smoking! What's crazy is that I've been admitted countless times for my kidney before and never has it affected me in this way, I guess because before it was because I was in active addiction and really didnt care if i died, in fact that's what i wanted, whereas now that I'm in recovery and on this healing journey with God, i dont want to die anymore, i have purpose in my life, so i want to take care of my health so i can continue to be a mother to my kids, recovery has brought so many beautiful blessings in my life, I now have q meaningful relationship with my son, we talk everyday for hours at a time, we never did that before! In fact i get to see him today and take him shopping for his birthday, that's also a new gift recovery has brought me, i am able to provide for my kids! I am still working at tacos a go go a few days a week, but I also have a new job that i was offered when I went to go make an amends to my first husband mother, she said she has been watching my progress and is so proud of me and knows that I'm seriously doing this program and she offered me a amazing opportunity to work with her in building this business, and get this, I'm making $20 an hour!!! I never before have ever even been able to hold down a job and here I am now with 2 and making more money than I ever have. I use the income from her job to go towards my back owed child support so I can stay out of jail and make my amends to my kids caretakers. I'm able to do these things because of your help, because of the help I received from the who, from my sponsor, my church family and God. So I just want to say that you truly made a difference in my life and I cant thank you enough, and mrs rushing as well, I hope that on days when you may feel like your not making a difference that you will read this and know that you already have and you will continue to change peoples lives for the better because you are amazing and have a great heart! Thank you so much for being a part of my recovery journey!

"Just a quick moment of your time. My name is Brian and Ms. Shanks is my (CSO) probation officer. I have been on probation since 9/2019. During this time I have went thru many life altering moments. Loss of my father. I inherited alot of money. Then lost it to attorney general. Then was given part back. Been through alot of ups and downs. To be honest if I hadn't have been Blessed with this amazing lady I dont know where i would be. Either back in the TDC or on the run from it. She truely cares about our feelings, our future and our freedom which comes with he r#1 priority SOBRIETY. I am 52 and have been an addict since I was 18. This is the 1st time that I have ever wanted to be sober. I have a long time to go 7 more years. Hopefully I can have her the whole time. Thank you for your time."

Good morning to Harris County most inspirational Probation Officer. I want to thank you for believing in me. Your faith in me helped lead me down the path of righteousness. I’ve been clean for over a year. I’ve changed my mind set but most of all I changed my attitude. And I have you to thank for that. Without your help and tough love I wouldn’t be here as a potential success story. So again, Thank you so much. Lastly just let me know when you get a chance to send over my paperwork to be completely released from the program. Thank you have a blessed day.

Dear Mrs. Jackson, I have really been trying to stay proactive and me and my friends noticed the place where we go jogging in the back of kingwood East End Park was being constantly trashed by young kingwood kids that are out of school so we took it upon ourselves to go out there yesterday and we cleaned up the park. Just wanted to share to let you know I’m trying to make a change even if it’s small and I hope all is well. Thank you and have a great day.

My client has been working so hard during this time to obtain employment, and although it has not happened yet she is still pushing towards her goals and has an amazing attitude. She is starting a online class at HCC in Principles of finance in 2 weeks, attending daily online meetings, and now she has decided to make use of her time to help others by volunteering at the food bank. Also she emails me any resources that she thinks other clients on the Wednesday Star docket could benefit from during this hard time so I can share them. She is defiantly a STAR client. I have attached the email she just sent me. This is why I chose to do this job. I want to help my clients all I can to make a difference and change in their life and this is just one example of one of my clients that have worked so hard to make a better life. I had to share because I am very proud of this client.

Email: "Great news. My first volunteer shift for the food bank on Port road is Friday May 1st from 1 to 4 also my sister does have the computer I will get over there by this weekend and make sure it's going to work for me I'll let you know by Monday and I just received an email from the Worksource a lady named Anita is going to be helping me thank you also for the website that you sent me I have not opened it yet but I will be here in a few minutes. Miss Archer I really do appreciate all your help thank you so much have a wonderful rest of week and weekend."

Ms. Jackson,

I just wanted to thank you for everything you’ve done for me during this 2 years of an unpleasant situation. You are an incredible person and I am so thankful that, even due to the circumstances, we were able to meet. Thank you for never treating me like I was less than or nothing at all. Thank you for truly believing in me and believing that I am able & capable of change. I can promise you that I will never go down any roads/paths that would lead me into anymore trouble. I wish nothing but the best for you and am so thankful to have someone as kind & considerate as you looking over me. Thank you again and best wishes to you!

Best Regards,
Ben

We are so proud of our Felony Mental Health Court team (FMHC) and everything they continue to do to assist their clients. Check out this email below addressed to CSO Scurlock. #restoringhope #CSCDcares

Good Afternoon Ms. Scurlock,

I just wanted to say thank you so much, in recent weeks while things may have felt overwhelming or many have fallen into depression’s breading ground I was able to acclimate to the situations and I know that’s in large part to the tools and resources given to me by yourself, Judge Thomas and the rest of you guy’s staff. I really appreciate not being stuck in an Uber - those joyful periods of time where I am able to enjoy my alone time to listen to a podcast or mole over a new wellness tool bring me great joy. You really saved my life. Thank you again - I hope you are staying safe.

CSCD wanted to share this email we received from a client that was addressed to Ms. Angelo. Angelo is a supervisor with the RIC PTI PCS Caseload. #restoringHope #changinglives

The client, Ms. H. struggled with her addiction during the time she was on supervision with CSO Angelo, but through the clients strength and the support and guidance from Ms. Angelo she was able to succeed! While under her supervision, Ms. H successfully terminated from the RIC PTI PCS program last week. CSO Zimmerman did a fantastic job of supporting the client to the finish line.

"Please thank Mrs. Angelo for me, even though I became rebellious I am grateful. My kids got their mom back. Thank you so much again," said Ms. H.

All of us at CSCD salute Ms. Angelo. Thank you for ALL You Do to positive impact the lives of clients and their families!!

We are #Restoringhope daily because #CSCDcares. It's all about #changinglives and providing #publicsafety. Here is another success story!

Mr. C. was placed on probation for possession in November 2019. From the very beginning, Mr. C. has been motivated to do better and expressed change through his actions. He completed IOP/SOP in March. Mr. C. used to use marijuana, ecstasy, and alcohol because he liked to party. He is grateful he got in trouble because it was the push he needed to stop and realize it was time to settle down. He is working on being a better father and husband for his family. He has had all negative UAs since being placed on probation and has successfully completed all of the SACC requirements!

We are #restoringhope and providing #publicsafety because #CSCDcares. Check out this letter from a client.

Dear Officer C. Nance

I understand you are the supervisor of the group that runs the DWI PTI program and I wanted to write a note of appreciation for Office Olivia Rojas. I was assigned Officer Rojas after my initial meeting with Officer A. Beverly and I have had meetings and communicated with her during the last 6 months.

As I am sure you are aware navigating the DWI PTI system can be a very difficult time and I am sure may people such as myself felt shame and fear as we entered the process.
Office Rojas treated me with respect and helped me understand my requirements and communicated very well with me about the program and my goals. I really appreciate her work ethic, assistance and help she gave me to be able to complete my first 6 months of the program.

Both Officer Rojas and Beverly did an outstanding job and I just wanted to voice my appreciation.

I also want to mention that all the staff at the North Facility including the UA staff and the instructor of the DWI Education – Alcohol and Drug Education HCCSCD class were all professional and helpful.

Best Regards
Anthony

A Success Story during this health crisis from CSCD Supervisor Calvin Farria. #CDCDcares #CSCDstrong #RestoringHope

"The Mental Health Initiative Unit consists of 10 Probation Officers that provide Supervision to a very Unique Population and as you know this work can be very stressful on a direct care staff due to the Level of Trauma. It is extremely difficult to find the words that can give each of them the credit that they rightfully deserve as providers of Mental Health Supervision within this Unit. The officers bring their skills for communicating with these individuals with each word that is spoken to their individual clients. The officers provide their time, energy, compassion, listening skills and personal resources to aid their client as needed. To describe each person takes a learned presence of each personality which forms this very talented team of Mental Health Professionals. The group has 9 beautiful strong women who often request acknowledgement and question respectfully every turn or twist when given to them. Also within our group there are only two men which includes myself and another officer that at times he has to balance things between his 9 female peers. To reflect on our current situation with COVID-19 has truly provided a view of this teams human resiliency by the way they have adapted to working remotely from home and continuing to provide a level of contacts which have exceeded many other units. The group members are very opinionated and in spite of that have continued to press forward by delivering the best possible service to their clientele. So when recognitions are being made regarding contributions please make it a point to acknowledge the Mental Health Initiative Unit of the Specific Needs Region."

To anyone on probation or considering probation, If you truly want a better life than work this process. I came into the system trying to cheat it. Thru the course of definite failure on that front, i simply tried the concepts applied. Thankfully, I lost the criminal mentality and fear of law enforcement. So to all, if you try to do this, you will be very successful. Former criminal but redeemed man.
