Angelia Anderson became a licensed Drug & Alcohol Counselor after beating the odds of being addicted to drugs and alcohol over half of her life. She answered her calling in 2000, and immediately became involved in working with women in transition from some of the same life problems she once experienced. Angelia has earned a BA in Human Services and is a licensed CACIII.
In 2008, she married Dwight Anderson and the two agreed that Denver Metro area lacked sufficient resources to help prevent homelessness, recidivism, and non-compliance with court mandates and drug & alcohol related treatment so, they opened the doors of their home to women and men from the Colorado Department of Corrections, City and County Drug Courts, and the homeless to offer hope to the hopeless.
Angelia believes strongly that changed lives begin when each one of us takes personal responsibility for the mishaps and dysfunctions we contribute to our families, communities, and society as a whole. Her vision is “Changing Lives – Restoring Families” on a global scale.
Today, as Executive Director she oversees the daily operations of the Treasure House of Hope, an on-site training center that focuses on people who are desperate for change due to hopelessness and failure in their lives.
