Review for Canning Hunger Inc, Brea, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My name is Ray Foreman. I am the Houston and San Antonio Area Coordinator for Canning Hunger. However, I did not start out that way. I was a License Chemical Dependency Counselor for years prior to being introduced to and about Canning Hunger in 2012. My concern at the time was to help as many people possible who were suffering from the disease of addiction, who were hopeless and helpless to find that hope. But in my many years of experience as a counselor, seeing clients who was motivated for change but did not having a stable, supported living environment to go back to. Also, a great number of people who suffer from a mental illness, homeless, incarcerated, etc., has a co-occurring disorder which included substance abuse or self medication. What I wanted to do was something more. Through my relationship and partnership with Canning Hunger, it has enable me to provide a stable, structured living environment while giving the residents and opportunity to regain their self worth. We have grown from being able to help a few to having the ability and the capacity to house as many as 125 residents in Houston and Dallas. Without Canning Hunger I would not be able to do that. Thanks Canning Hunger...,
