Meet Gary. He conquered addiction. Now, he volunteers.

Gary arrived at the Mission shelter in a hard battle against alcoholism. He soon discovered incredible support in his peers, his case manager, and the shelter staff.

By the end of the 120-Day Levels Program, Gary had secured his own apartment – an apartment where he still lives today.

Now, Gary comes back every day to volunteer. He happily helps in the kitchen and washes dishes. He also finds time to sit and chat with his peers, encouraging them in their own journey.

Gary loves his new apartment, but he loves his new Mission family even more. We love Gary in return. We thank him for his kindness and generosity!he Value of Volunteers
