Jessica Robblee’s story is one of perseverance and hope, despite the odds that were stacked against her.
Born in Eureka, California, Jessica had personal and family challenges early. She began using drugs at the age of 16, had her son when she was 18, and her daughter at 23, moving to Fort Bragg to raise her family. Although she was able to maintain sobriety for a few years, she eventually relapsed, and her partner at the time took her children away. For 10 years, Jessica found herself caught in a cycle of homelessness, substance abuse, and encounters with law enforcement.
BACS got connected to Jessica after she was arrested in 2017, with her case manager Brandy focusing on helping Jessica on her sobriety journey and locating safe housing.
