A LIFE TRANSFORMED
Obed from BCFS Health and Human Services-Abilene
Obed Galindo is a dedicated father and a loving husband, but during a rough patch in his life he struggled with substance abuse. He sought help at a treatment center in Abilene where he met a parent educator from BCFS Health and Human Services.
Obed joined BCFS Health and Human Services’ parenting education program called Fatherhood EFFECT. He was skeptical and disillusioned at first – an unwilling participant. He missed his family and his outlook was grim, but mid-way through the program he began to open up. Obed brought in family photos to show his classmates, and he spoke lovingly about his wife and kids back home.
“I’m more than thankful for the Fatherhood EFFECT parenting classes,” said Obed Galindo. “When I first joined the program, I was so angry at myself for who I had become, and how far I had fallen. I came from a messed up background. But God showed up and showed out. God closed doors that needed to be closed, and opened others.”
