Walking For Dreams

Hello Friends and Family of Seeds of Hope, Inc. We are participating in a new fundraiser called “Walking for Dreams”. This event is held on May May 17, 2020 and is supported through the Sycamore Foundation where many small non-profits get together and walk for donations to meet their specific needs. This year we are trying to raise money to replace the beds and bedroom suites for the 17 beds at our house, many of which have been there over 20 years. You can participate in this fundraiser by becoming a walker, sponsor or giving a donation. We hope you can help in any way. Please follow this link to the “Walking for Dreams” website to see how you can be of service. Thanks for all your support!

For any questions, please contact Marvetta Grimes (Executive Director) at 317-244-0203 or Beverly Brewer (Development Coordinator} at 317-223-7621.

I arrived at Seeds of Hope on June 17, 2003, and I’ve been here ever since. I have been in and out of jails and treatment facilities since the age of 18. In September of 1990, I was arrested for conspiracy to deal cocaine, and was sentenced to 12 years in prison. I served a total of 9 years and 8 months.


In May of 2003, one month prior to my release from prison, my father died from complications of a minor surgery. I was completely devastated. I was allowed to attend his funeral service – but in handcuffs, shackles, and escorted by two guards. That was my bottom. I never thought about not having my dad around. I took for granted that he would always be there for me. God had other plans. Today, I truly believe that my father died in order for me to live. My dad was a big enabler for me, always bailing me out and coming to my rescue. His death meant I was on my own.

When I returned to prison after the funeral, I decided that I was finished living a life of self-destruction, and I knew in my heart that I could not use drugs and be successful. I began to write to different recovery houses in Indianapolis and was accepted by two. Seeds of Hope was the one I chose.


I was released from the Rockville Correctional Facility on June 17, 2003, and I went straight to Seeds of Hope. I was able to obtain employment and remain drug free. I was required to attend meetings on a daily basis, obtain a sponsor, and was subject to random drug screens. Seeds of Hope taught me to be responsible and accountable. I learned to live life on life’s terms, without the use of drugs or alcohol. Seeds of Hope saved my life, and I am forever grateful to everyone affiliated with this program.


Today, I have 15 years of continuous clean time. I am the Administrator at Seeds of Hope. Each and every day, I thank God for this program. It is truly rewarding to give back and remain a part of Seeds of Hope.
