Before Kevin Simmers’ daughter Brooke died of an opioid overdose, she had wanted to open a treatment center for women. He made her dream come true.
When Brooke Simmers was in a rehab facility for opiate addiction, she told her father, Kevin, that she wanted to open her own halfway house. Brooke died in 2015, but now, her father has made her dream a reality.
“It’s our belief that Brooke prayed for a house,” Simmons told TODAY’s Craig Melvin on the newest episode of “Dads Got This.” “She prayed for a house that would help women, her own rehab facility. She was going to call it Brooke’s House, so my wife and I decided that we were going to try to answer Brooke’s prayer and fulfill her dream and get her that house.”
