Matt’s journey began when he arrived at the Better Roads Recovery Ministry in 2009. He enrolled as a resident, graduated the program, and stayed while enrolled in Hyles-Anderson College until March of 2013. In the period of 3 years he had overcome addiction, met his wife, began to acquire a counseling degree, and felt the Lord’s hand leading him to help others in the same struggles. He was hired to manage our ministry thrift store in 2014 and has since been transferred to be the Director of the men’s home.
