Brittany Andry grew up in Tyler, TX. Years of drug addiction, jail and many other forms of disappointments led her to treatment in 2008 in the Hill Country. She moved to a sober living home in Kerrville with the intent of only staying for 90-days, but ultimately lived there for almost a year. She says those were some of the best months of her life because sober living allowed her the chance to meet wonderful women and build true meaningful relationships with them. It allowed her to get a good foundation in her recovery with accountability and structure. She learned about a 12 step program that enabled her the chance to change herself and to serve others. When she moved out of that home, she became a member of their board of directors until the house closed. Brittany was inspired to open her own sober home after serving as the assistant director for one that one of her friends owned.
Brittany has a bachelors in criminal justice from Sam Houston State University and is working on her Master's in Social Work with the University of Houston. She also works alongside two of her friends as an interventionist with Crossley Ford Recovery Solutions. She is on the board of directors for Kerrville's only non-profit men's home, the Turner House. She and her husband Jacob have been married since 2008 and together raise their two beautiful little girls. They all support her in all her wild ideas. Brittany understands the difficulties in balancing family with her personal recovery and her hope is to provide guidance and support for other mom's and any other woman seeking help in beginning their journey of recovery.
Divine Promises believes in the importance of fellowship, structure, accountability and service. All of these are pieces of recovery proven to work toward long term sobriety. It is Brittany's mission to help women in their recovery by providing a safe clean place for them to live while they get started on their journey. It is her hope that women who make their way here will feel at home, feel peace and feel safe.
Callie Crossley Jefferson House Manager
Callie grew up in the small east Texas town of Chandler. At an early age she lost her mother, a very hard loss. Right after high school Callie married and had two boys of her own. As a stay at home mom she devoted her life to her children. At 22, her battle with addiction began and she quickly became enmeshed in the world of drugs and alcohol, where life took a very dark turn. Callie moved to Kerrville to get sober in 2017. She was unsuccessful and again turned to the life she was living before. She was arrested on multiple occasions until the last time in 2020. She was sent to prison, and quite frankly it saved her life. Prison is where she reconnected with a Power bigger than she. She took the opportunity to build a relationship with the only one who could save her from the hell she was living before.
After two years in prison she returned to Kerrville and moved into Divine Promises with a newfound commitment to doing the work and to serve. She’s helped manage Divine Promises since February of 2022. She has completed Kerr County Specialty Drug Court and parole. Callie works as a personal assistant and at a local vape shop. She has rebuilt relationships with her family and her two boys. Divine Promises quickly became Callie’s safe place and it is her desire to do the same for all the women who come to live there. Accountability, service, trust in self and in others, and the ultimate trust in a Power greater than herself, has enabled Callie to thrive, be a wonderful mother again, and live her life to the fullest. Her hope is to help those just like her to find the freedom she has found, and especially to help the mother’s who feel there is no hope for reunification and healing with their children.
Casondra Austin Tree House Manager
Casondra is originally from Tennessee. She comes from a lifestyle full of brokenness and heartache. A life full of drugs, homelessness, and prostitution. Her shame overtook her. She has made many attempts at getting sober over the years. Overall she has spent 6 years of her life in rehabs. At each of her attempts she learned new tools but was never able to maintain sobriety. She knew what she was being taught, she just could never seem to put it into action. She was incarcerated for what felt like the 100th time, and while there she connected with an organization that arranged for her to leave Waco and relocate to Kerrville for sober living at Divine Promises.
On February 23, 2022 Casondra’s life began again. She says that since then she has found a peace and joy in being sober that she has never felt before. She tries to live a life of integrity and independence, two things she had previously never thought were possible. She is finally at a place where she has the freedom, security, and is able to put into practice all the things she has learned over the years. She enjoys helping women find the freedom she has found. Being a part of the recovery community and managing Divine Promises have filled her life with purpose. Her future hope is to further her education while getting the opportunity to see addicts like her find freedom.
