SOUTH BEND, Ind.--- It's not often we celebrate vice, but recognizing it can help you overcome it.

That's the idea at Hope Ministries.

They held a graduation ceremony today for six people who have been working through addiction, homelessness and abuse.

For the past six months they have been taking classes, including addiction recovery, to help them overcome their struggles.

One graduate said she had been addicted to drugs since she was 13, came from a family of abuse and addiction, went to jail, but eventually found hope.

“It’s an amazing feeling to accomplish something, and feel like I have that second chance,” said Dorothy Stachulak, a Hope Ministries graduate. “And I have a chance at the rest of my life, and to be something in life.”

The next step is preparing to get a job.
