The 180 Center’s Leadership
Tara Edmunson grew up going to church. Her parents divorced when she was young. By the age of fifteen she was turning to alcohol for comfort; she became pregnant a year later.
Tara believed that being accepted by God was based on her performance, but no matter how much she tried to earn God’s approval, she continued to turn to alcohol. Addiction to alcohol led to great loss in Tara’s life. She committed to The 180 Center’s eighteen month discipleship training program in July of 2012.
While in the program, Tara learned the truth that she will never be able to be good enough for God, but God loves, forgives her sin, and accepts her based on what Jesus did on Calvary… He paid the price for her sin! She has been delivered from addiction to alcohol and cigarettes, plus she is thankful for His continual healing in her family relationships.
Tara Completed the discipleship program in July 2013. After completing the program, the Lord directed her to stay at the center as volunteer staff. Today Tara serves as Co-director and teacher at The 180 Center. In addition, she manages our Christian woman’s sober house in New Haven.
