Two years ago, Keith Rocheville saw his marriage falling apart. What's more, he couldn't even support his two teenage kids financially.

He says, "Trying to save the marriage and family I had, I used what little I made to pay our bills. We owned a really reasonably nice home, the only I had ever owned. Our marriage just couldn't be saved, and I eventually fell so far behind in support the state charged me with a felony. I was depressed, in the worst ways. I couldn't leave the house. I basically stayed in a room all day, walked to the corner if I bummed $5 from my mom. I was 38. Pathetic."

After his divorce, he started looking another woman, an old flame of his with whom he was on an on-off relationship. One day, the woman checked his phone and saw messages from his ex-wife as well as a message he had sent to a friend that said he wasn't planning to stick around with this woman.

He says, "I still have nothing. I spent six weeks in county jail this summer, I have a court date for felony support on 19th. There is no help for someone like me, I just can't get back on my feet. I don't have drug or alcohol problem, I just have life problem. I am emotionally 200 percent better. My spirit is in a good place, it's just not the same without my kids to share it with."

He says,

However, walking out of the whole emotional turmoil and starting a new, healthy life is quite a challenge and although he has failed in the past, Keith has sure won the battle on this front.
