An Alberta woman with a fair share of trouble behind her is happy that she can help other women with a recovery home that has opened in High River.

Kimberley Courtney, the founder of the Narrow Road Home Recovery House, says that she was finishing her Master’s degree in psychology when her life completely fell apart.

“I was a single mother with three kids and I really struggled with where to go and where I could go and fall apart somewhere safely.”

Kimberley Courtney founded the Narrow Road Home Recovery House in High River, which helps women who are struggling with a myriad of issues. She is this week’s Inspiring Albertan.
