I am Randy Davis, the founder and president of ABLBH. Early on in my life I recognized my desire to help those who might be struggling. I have been blessed with experiences that have fed my hunger. I believe in encouraging others before they believe in themselves. Thus, ABLBH believes in you.
It was June of 2014 when God first burdened my heart with the needs of those battling addiction. God used Brianna's experiences, story, and life to touch me in a way unlike He never has. Then he began opening doors and creating opportunities that showed me together we would make a difference. So here we are changing lives and saving lives. For certain God gets the glory but without so many feet and hands moving for Him we would not have the impact that we have!
Join us and believe with us!
Hi! My name is Gina Raines. I am the administrative assistant and the board treasurer for ABLBH. I am very passionate about my work with A Better Life-Brianna’s Hope. I have witnessed firsthand how addiction can destroy lives and families. My family has fought this deadly disease for many years. I am forever grateful for the treatment and support provided to our family through ABLBH.
I have been a foster parent for ten years. All the children who have come to us have lived through addiction. I have seen how addiction affects the lives of these children and how their innocence is lost. I want to be able to help these parents learn the necessary skills to regain custody of their children. I have graduated with a degree in Human Services and Addiction Studies. I am also a Certified Peer Recovery Coach with the Jay County Drug Prevention Coalition. I have always felt the need to help others and am blessed to be a part of this organization.
Hello! My name is Kandi Sapp. I am the office assistant for the ABLBH main office in Portland,
IN. I am a Jay County native and I have always known I wanted my career to be helping others.
I have obtained my Bachelor of Social Work Degree from Indiana Wesleyan University. I was
fortunate enough to spend time interning for DCS of Portland, Jay County Probation
Department, and Adams Memorial Hospital Behavioral Health Unit. During that journey, I
witnessed how fast the factors and obstacles of our daily lives can dim our light. I also saw how fast the spark can come back with the proper support and resources. I am honored to be given the chance to help bring back hope for those who feel they have been left in the dark.
I have also experienced personally how addiction can affect every part of your life. I want to be able to help those struggling find the skills and resources they need to let their true potential shine. I am a firm believer that if we want to make positive change it must first start with us. I feel beyond blessed and excited to be given the chance to help ABLBH members and the organization on this journey of positive change, growth, and development. I am very proud to join the ABLBH team in the battle against addiction.
