Once, Sean was broken.
Struggling with an addiction he couldn’t overcome, he came to The Salvation Army’s Adult Rehabilitation Center in Oakland. There, Sean learned to live without using drugs, and got his life back. Soon after, he entered The Salvation Army’s Napa Valley Culinary Training Academy. Our culinary programs help people in recovery begin new, self-sufficient lives by training them for careers in the culinary field. After Sean graduated last September, he quickly found a job at an area country club.
Then, just weeks later, the wildfires broke out. Sean wanted to give back, and so he returned to The Salvation Army to help prepare meals for wildfire evacuees. “I was using the skills I had learned in the Training Academy,” Sean says. “It feels good when people can rely on you. At The Salvation Army, they’ve given me a lot of support,” he adds. “So, I wanted to give all the support I could. I’m grateful to The Salvation Army—for everything they’ve done.”
