The new Beauty for Ashes recovery program in Bradenton is providing former addicts with a clean slate and a new resume.
BRADENTON, Fla — Four months ago Danielle Fanno’s life was upside down.
"I started marijuana and then I started doing cocaine and then I started doing crack,” said Fanno.
The 20-year-old enrolled in the Beauty for Ashes recovery program and now she’s starting to work as a housekeeper.
“This is more than a job, it’s teaching me a new way of life,” said Fanno.
Debbi Hanna is director of the program. She said this provides former addicts with a clean slate and a new resume.
“It’s often difficult finding a job when you have a long period of not working or you have a record,” said Hanna.
The program just started, but so far they have about six women enrolled. Click here for more information on the Beauty for Ashes cleaning program.
