What Did Rebecca Holets Do ?

It all started through Crystal Champ, a 36-year-old woman who was undergoing some major setbacks in her life. The lady was living on the streets of Albuquerque, New Mexico and had been homeless for over two years. She struggled to pay for her living due to heroin and crystal meth addiction. It also didn’t help that she was eight months pregnant when Rebecca’s husband Ryan Holets found her in the midst of a heroin intake behind a convenience store.

It wasn’t only baby Hope who got a chance at life, her mother Crystal also did. She later went to rehab and has been sober for almost two years. Currently, she can be found devoting herself to help people like her recover from addiction.
