A program that helps young women get a second chance at life has a new facility. Thanks for joining us I’m Carl Brady. A Way Out Day Program offers women ages 16 to 24 - who have come from foster care, group homes, human trafficking and others situations – a way they can get their lives back on track. The program was founded five years ago and has recently opened an extension in Gadsden called the MELL house. Director and founder Claudia Elston says it’s important that these young ladies know there is still hope. Elston was once a young mother who was addicted to drugs and alcohol. She says the day she learned her mother had cancer was the day she decided to get sober. Elston says she is proud of the girls she has now, one in particular is getting the opportunity to graduate this summer.
