Frank, 41

Struggled with alcohol and drug abuse since the age of 12

Frank began using alcohol and drugs when he was 12 years old. At the age of 22, he was diagnosed with mental illness. He weighed nearly 300 lbs. and was living on the streets of Los Angeles without any type of treatment.

“When I was accepted into the program at Homes for Life, it was the first permanent place I had to live in my life. Now, I have friends and a good relationship with my family. I’ve been stable on medication and clean from drugs and alcohol for six years. I want to thank Homes for Life for this chance.”
