During Cheyenne's time at Gracenter, they had the opportunity to go to school for community health work at CCSF. Their schooling helped them pursue their passion for harm reduction and establish their goal of working in the field of harm reduction to help those in the same place they were not long ago; living on the streets and struggling with substance use. Cheyenne is now working for a nonprofit that offers community-based care resources as a Program Lead, where a huge part of their role is leading their team in building out a new harm reduction program from scratch. Cheyenne is actively involved in 12 steps and sponsors other people in the program to carry the message of hope and recovery. They now have their own apartment where they live with their two fur-baby cats, and they're in their first healthy, happy, long-term relationship. They have rebuilt their relationships with their family members and spend time with them with them often, and they take any chance they can get to travel to new places and spend time outside and in nature. "Gracenter taught me how to be responsible to myself and to others. Gracenter taught me how to have healthy relationships and to trust women again. Gracenter offered me space, support, and grace as I crawled my way off of probation and out of the legal system. Gracenter gave me the home base I needed so that I could prioritize my recovery; from 12 step work, to rebuilding my family relationships, to therapy. Gracenter gave me a home to heal in."-- Cheyenne Cambri
