LYNDA JORDAN

A native of Washington, DC, Lynda is a mother of six and a grandmother of five! For over 25 years of her life, she struggled with drug addiction and going in and out of prison; meanwhile, her children were raised by her mother. Growing up, Lynda always felt something was wrong inside of her but couldn’t quite put a name to it. “I thought that there was something seriously wrong with me because I could not be what everyone else considered normal and then I learned that I am ok just as I am and I love me today.” It wasn’t until 2005 she was diagnosed with Co-occurring disorders. But that’s all behind her now. Today, Lynda is a Certified Peer Specialist (graduate of class 2014) and is enrolled at the University of DC-CC and is working towards her BA and MA in Social Work as well as looking forward to obtaining an AA in Addictions Counseling. Ms. Jordan was nominated into the National Society of Collegiate Scholars and is maintaining a 3.7 GPA. She completed her field practicum at Department of Behavioral Health where she now works as a Peer Support Specialist with Residential Services and Supports and manages the Peers Empowering Peers Program. Lynda is also a volunteer WRAP Facilitator and is working towards becoming an Advanced level facilitator at some time soon. Ms. Jordan maintains her wellness and sobriety by utilizing her own Wellness Recovery Action Plan as well going to meetings, taking her meds and seeing her doctor regularly. Ms. Jordan enjoys life, takes care of her home and spends a great deal of time with family and friends when not working.

 

“It is my hope and my goal to give back to others like me what was do freely given to me—LIFE! All of this would not be possible without trust in and strength from the God of my understanding, Jehovah, and the people whom he has placed in my life as my support. I am thankful for every opportunity that I have been blessed with that helps me to not only grow old but to grow up as well and to learn change my life for the better and I to have the strength and ability to remain clean just for today.”
