He notes, “I grew up in the heart of an inner-city neighborhood. It lacked resources that could have encouraged healthier lifestyles and choices amongst myself, my peers and the adults around me. I witnessed people suffer silently because of this, and made it my life’s mission to connect as many families as I could with the proper tools so that they could live fulfilling lives.”
TRZ currently serves more than 1,500 children and adults in north and central Ohio, who are impacted by drug and alcohol abuse, low-income disparities and mental illness.
