Catherine

Hi, my name is Catherine. Actually, the whole story is Catherine Bell, Ivett, Judson, Lemoine. I have always had one talent I was aware of, the one that allows me to be a chameleon. Not to say that I have always blended into the background, but to say I am adaptable. All my life I have known that God existed, that He was “there,” that He was with me and that I was not alone. I never sought to know more–that was enough.

I was baptized a Lutheran and raised in the Methodist Church.  I was first married in Las Vegas, second in a chapel and third in the Penthouse suite of Caesar’s Tahoe.  My two daughters were baptized Lutheran and sent to a Lutheran elementary school.  I never felt I needed to go to church.  God was always with me.  Life was good, I was good.  I was 37 at the time and was happy and “all was well.”

Recovery Home

Captive Hearts recovery homes are safe havens for women who have either been appointed by the Court system to go into a recovery program or self-refer seeking a rehabilitative program to help them get back on their feet. Our focus is also on their children, who have experienced abuse and neglect if their mother is using, and to get the client back to their home sober and clean.

Our clients are asked to fill out an application form detailing pertinent questions that will assist us in meeting their needs. They are then interviewed for at least two hours by our Program Director and counselors and given the House Rules for being in the home. They are also asked to fill out forms that are used during their intake: Application to Captive Hearts, Intake Assessment, Individual Treatment Goals, Assessment of Risk to Self/Others, and a No Suicide Contract.

No matter the means of their arrival, the women come face to face with their past to receive healing and acceptance through unconditional love.
