five men dinner discussion

Learning Recovery and Life Skills

Al-A-Mo Recovery Center is the region’s only transitional home for men recovering from drug and alcohol dependency. Its holistic approach establishes long-term sobriety, individual self-sufficiency, and health for its clients. The Cameron Foundation has awarded over $200,000 in funding over time and provided capacity-building supports for Al-A-Mo Recovery Center to expand its impact. Pictured here, Resident House Coordinator Lorenzo Jackson (center) shares dinner with some of the men in the residency program. Jackson himself is a former client of the program. He shares, “Being house coordinator, I had to learn how to get outside of myself and think about others. I’m trying to give back some of what was so freely given to me. Learning life skills, how to be a productive member of society, and also, how to care and share – these are things you will get by being here.”
