Keith is a graduate of the ICS Recovery Shelter and proudly states he has over 2 years of sobriety!
Before coming to ICS Recovery Shelter, he was sleeping on a bench in Pioneer Square Park. Keith had lived on the streets for several years after being arrested for an altercation with roommates.  When he got out of jail, he found himself homeless and fell into addiction.  He eventually found his way to outpatient treatment and the ICS Recovery Shelter to start building a sober life for himself.
Keith now lives next door, in his own apartment. He started an AA meeting in his building and is working on his certificate for peer support counselor. He returns every week to volunteer at the SLU Food Bank at ICS handing out food as a way to give back.  He doesn’t want any recognition for his service; he says his reward is helping others and earning another day of recovery!
