New Faces at Grace House

In addition to three new residents coming into the program over the past few months, we also have some new faces on our staff!  They’ve each shared a little about themselves below.

Adriane, Intern

Hello, my name is Adriane McCauley. I moved to Waco in 1998 from Austin. Being a new believer in Christ and new in recovery, I wanted to know more about God. I moved here to go through a ministry school offered by a local church–I was hungry for God and desired to be transformed, healed and set free from a life of addiction.  Since giving my life to Jesus, he has transformed me and has given me a passion for helping others walking in recovery. I came to an Antioch service in May and heard God say, “this is your home.” Soon after, I found out about Grace House and jumped in. I have been a volunteer at Grace House this past year and when the intern position came up, I knew that was where I needed to be. I’m so excited about this opportunity to serve at Grace House. Thank you Jesus!

Marissa, Resident Assistant

Hello, my name is Marissa Rush and I just moved here from San Diego. I was born in Irving, TX but raised in California. They say home is where the heart is, and somehow I always knew I would end up back in Texas. I just didn’t think it would happen so soon after I graduated college this past May. In March when the Lord called me here, but I had no idea what I was going to be doing; then the Lord opened a door to live at Grace House as the Resident Assistant. I couldn’t imagine a better job, and I love being close to my family. I have a sister in Dallas, and another sister, mom, and dad are southwest of Houston. I love coffee and people, and I may seem shy at first, but it doesn’t take long to break out of my shell.

Christina, Baylor Social Work Intern

I am originally from Knoxville, Tennessee and graduated from Carson-Newman University with a Bachelor’s in Psychology as well as a minor in Religion and Mental Health. I moved to Waco, Texas two years ago to begin my Master’s program. I’m a dual degree student with Truett Seminary and the Diana Garland School of Social Work at Baylor University. I am currently interning at Grace House as part of the social work requirements. I hope to complete this year-long internship with a better understanding of the addiction recovery process as well as the integration of faith and practice. I’m proud to be working alongside Grace House.
