Women battling homelessness and drug addiction get free make-overs

Posted: Updated:

A group of Atlanta women who are working to turn their struggles into success received a free day of pampering.

They are part of Gilgal Inc., a Christian-based residential recovery program in Atlanta. The women in the program are battling homelessness and drug addiction.

On Saturday, they were all offered facials, manicures and makeovers to help them get a head start on their future.

Rev. Rodney K. Turner, pastor of Mount Vernon Baptist Church of Atlanta is a supporter of Gilgal Inc.

"All of us together can help these ladies get back up and get back into society and be successful, all of us play a role in that," Turner said.

Gilgal says 70 percent of women who leave their program have stable housing, a job and have maintained their sobriety.
