IMG_0762At left — that’s me with Mishol Randolph. We were at the Dress for Success Purse and Pearls luncheon yesterday, and Mishol, of Erie, spoke to a sellout crowd that hung on every word.

At 25. Mishol recounted addictions to drugs and alcohol that started before she was a teenager and progressed to heroin. She cleaned up when she became pregnant, but returned to drugs within weeks of giving birth. She landed in prison, but she credits that experience for realizing she would lose her daughter.

Today, Mishol is a sales executive for the Erie Bayhawks, and she is happily raising her daughter Baelyn, 7.

Hers is a story of help from an entire Erie community that supports women. Kudos to the Erie County Treatment Court, a treatment-oriented program associated with the Mental Health Association of Northwestern Pennsylvania; Turning Point, a chemical dependency treatment facility in Franklin;

Mercy Center for Women, Dress for Success and the Erie Bayhawks.

Congratulations to Mishol and all the women who have turned their lives around with the help of Erie organizations.
