our board members
It's important to know who has a hand in offering you services. Here's a look at our board members.
Tia Hughes is a person in long term recovery. She is one of the Founders of Bridge to Shore Recovery and serves as the Executive Director.

My name is Tracey Stacy and I have been in recovery since 2013. I am currently in graduate school, work as a case manager and substance abuse counselor, and am married with two children. All blessings that I give God all the glory for!
Women’s housing is very special to my heart because I see the struggle that so many women go through when being released from incarceration or discharged from treatment with no where to go. Being able to provide safe and sober housing to women in this area to foster and encourage healing, continued abstinence, and freedom is so needed for our community—and I am thankful to be a small part of the Bridge to Shore organization to help works towards and accomplish just that.
