Men's and Women's Home
The Victory Outreach Recovery Homes Ministry provides a residential, Christian environment for men and women. The purpose of the Homes is to reclaim, redeem, and restore lives that have been destroyed or disrupted by drugs, alcohol and/or other substance abuse by establishing three essential values; a commitment to Christ, restoration of the family and a positive work ethic. A drug user is often a product of his environment. That's why our Recovery Homes first get them off the mean streets and into a caring Home. Once there, the addict or alcoholic begins an intensive faith-based, one-year program that restores the whole person. The leaders who run the Homes know it's not an easy road, because many of them are ex-addicts themselves. Yet through their tough-love, compassion and support, they've seen tremendous results. There is no charge for this one-year program, but each person earns their recovery and stay. May God Bless you in the days ahead.

"She partied with her husband Johnny whenever she got the chance, consuming as much alcohol as her body would allow.Nothing seemed to give her the peace she was looking for, until she was radically changed forever. She invited Jesus Christ into her heart and began to follow the Lord."Kathy Heredia, The First Lady of Victory Outreach Seattle Click here for full Testimony

Frank and Rochelle Cortez ~ The Testimony of Frankie Cortez:
I grew up in a big family and I am the youngest out of 12. I was heavily involved in drugs and gangs. My dad was a gang member and dope fiend and my mom was a gang member and dope fiend also. I learned at a very young age if somebody hurt me, how to hurt them back. Due to that learning, at the age of eleven, I committed a heinous crime of mayhem and attempted murder. I was sentenced to Life in prison as a minor (so I received 13 years 9 months). I never completed any schooling past the 4th grade. When I got out of the Youth Authority in California at the adult age of 24, the only thing I remembered was the past ways of my dad of my brothers of gang violence and drug addiction. Once again, I continued the path of the destructive lifestyle. One year after my release, I committed another crime and received another 7 years in prison, which allowed me to go even deeper into the lifestyle of prison gangs. After that 7 year term, I was now rooted real deep into gangs and it was either life in prison or death that would remove me from it.
After that long prison term I was involved in a very bad shooting where my uncle lost his life, and I was shot multiple times and caught another sentence associated with that, which was another three years in prison. In that time that is when God got a hold of my life. The Lord ministered to me and exposed me to his love, which I did not know how to receive.
It took ten years for me to finally come to a place where God had set me up to come into a Victory Outreach Men's Home.
Looking back at my past, and living a destructive lifestyle, the only things I received from the world was that I was shot 5 times, stabbed 3 times, kidnapped, ran over by a car, too many random acts of violence, and spent too many years in prison; and every time God had his hand on me. It was at the Victory Outreach Men's Home where I seen that it was God's Mighty Hand intervening in my life. This is where I caught the vision and the burden of others who were lost and burdened by the lifestyle of drug addiction and gang violence. I graduated the men's home after 16 months and became Assistant Director along side my Home Director, David Brooks (Pastor Dave). After Pastor Dave past away in 2008, I ended becoming the Home director myself. Immediately after that, my family was restored to me, and my marriage was completely restored. Me and my wife Rochelle are now in full time ministry, and have the privilege of being of service as the Men's Home Directors, with my four kids who are serving the Lord by our side. It is wonderful to be helping others along the way to a better life. Hallelujah! Praise Him!!
Ann Marie Reed's Testimony
This was who I was:
My life had no meaning and no purpose. It wan't until I was older that a family member introduced me to Meth. I was addicted from the beginning, but I was unaware of the destruction my life was about to face. I was using daily and seeing my kids less and less. I was in and out of jail and I went to prison three times. I was in an abusive relationship, putting myself in very dangerous situations with people who would snap at any moment. Always running, looking over my shoulders, never sleeping or eating. I felt trapped by my addiction and the lifestyle that came with it. Days turned into months and months turned into years. Separated from my children for so long, the guilt of my addiction led me to use even more, now using the needle to satisfy the monster that was inside me. I didn't care if I lived or died, I welcomed death. But Jesus had other plans for me. On my third trip to the Washington State Correctional Facility for women, where I was sentenced to 60 months, I attended a church service one night at the prison and the Volunteers that came to the prison told me that I could have forgiveness for everything that I had done. I carried so much guilt and shame for what i had allowed my life to become and the harm that it caused my family, I needed forgiveness. It was the hope that I needed to start my life with God. I went into the Victory Outreach Women's home shortly after my release from prison and it was there that I learned about Jesus and how He loves us. I learned to pray and read the Bible. God restored my family. My children are saved and they love God and we as a family are a part of the Victory Outreach Seattle family. I have been serving God for 5 years now with my children and Grand-children along side of me. God never gave up on me ~ there is hope. Don't give up, Jesus is the answer.
Hi, my name is Nhial Gach (pronounced "Nay-Hall or Nahal") and this is my testimony: "I am from Sudan, and I am one of the Lost Boys from Sudan (the so-called term 'Lost Boys' comes from thousands of child refugees who fled the Second Sudanese Civil War in Africa where roughly 2 million people died and about 4 million people in southern Sudan were displaced). My journey to get out of the horrible civil war in my country was difficult and extraordinary, but God gave me the victory. I witnessed many terrible things and really bad hardship of my people. My path to freedom took me from Sudan to refugee camps in Ethiopia, and from Ethiopia, I was able to find a way to America, thank God. After I got to America (Seattle), I started running the streets and got into some trouble right away. I got arrested, and then in June 2010, and the Lord delivered me to Victory Outreach to God's people. Jesus gave me a counselor and good man, Frankie Cortez and his wife Sister Rochelle (Men's Home Directors) and Pastor Johnny and his wife Sister Kathy (Pastors of VO Seattle). I went to the Men's Home and then graduated in 2012. I then went through Phase Two of the program and landed a good job. Now I am in a Discipleship Home with one of the Pastors in the church where I am becoming stable and secure with my new job and new life, and I am learning to become faithful outside of the Men's Home. I am actively involved in the Usher ministry in the church and enjoy being a person of hospitality in the House of the Lord. I ONCE WAS LOST BUT NOW I AM FOUND. Hallelujah!"
Kevin Johnson's Testimony
My name is Kevin Johnson. There was a time in my life when I was bounded, lost, hurting and homeless. I had almost lost all hope. I had no direction, purpose for life or destiny! Then one day, I was told to go to Victory Outreach. Little did I know that God was actually calling me to himself! Now years later, I'm saved, delivered and blessed by the Lord. I have a family and a good job. I have an awesome plan and purpose for my life today. I'm involved in my local church ( VO SEATTLE), in our dynamic music ministry where I'm priveledged to lead songs in our worship services. I've also been able to attend school of ministry (V.E.T.I.) classes to further my christian education. I'm so glad that I listened years ago to the call of God! I know now that there is hope in Jesus Christ! GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME. God bless you, "KJ"
BROTHER JOSHUA ~ My Testimony
Growing up in Seattle, Washington I got involved with drugs and alcohol about 12 years old. I've been in and out of jail, and neglected my kids due to alcohol abuse. I came into the VO Men's Home lost and confused with no hope, now I have Jesus Christ in my life. I have guidance to my life now. He's begun restoration in my family. I look forward to helping men who are in the same situation I used to be in. I am a recent graduate of the Home, and a current staff member at the Men's Home. I thank God for the Men's Home. It's been a life changing experience. I pray that if you're reading this, wherever you are, that these testimonies reach out to you and that you get a hold of the Men's Home.
