The Healing Place of Wake County

The Healing Place is a non-profit recovery and rehabilitation facility for homeless people with alcohol and drug dependency in Raleigh.  The program is designed to re-establish the woman’s desire to return to a meaningful and productive life. Within one year of graduation, about 70 % of the women are sober and productive members of society.  Once a month I have the privilege to teach Zumba to the women as a group activity.  The women are such an inspiration to me as I see them desire freedom from their addiction and hope for their future.  Zumba has become an amazing resource for me to connect with the women as a means of recovery.
