Kevin was homeless and living on the streets. He knew our recovery program was his “last chance to save his life.” He worked hard in the Learning and Career Center, gaining job and life skills that he desperately needed. That sense of purpose helped to give him a vision for his future, a future free of homelessness.
Today, Kevin owns a business right here in the Greater Delaware Valley. He is happily married and has a daughter, too, that he works hard to support. Staying clean and sober also allowed him to rebuild his relationship with friends and family, especially his dad.
“My father and I have both grown and have built our relationship like it’s never been before,” he said “That’s one of the great rewards. Plus, I have put my faith in God. I trust in His will for my life.”
