"My name is Melissa Forsythe, also a Veteran of the United States Army.

In 2018 I was able to achieve my goal of obtaining my Bachelors in Criminal Justice from Texas A&M University San Antonio.

I have been a part of A Recovery Place, Inc; in some fashion since 2007. Currently I serve as the Secretary and the Volunteer Coordinator.

I recently decided to make the commitment to help make sure the doors remained open to continue helping others."
