Assistant Program Director
A life of chaos and uncertainty shaped Matthew’s childhood. Even with the stark and consistent failures of his parents playing out on a daily basis in front of his eyes, Matt followed suit. Drugs were the only coping mechanism seemingly offered or available to escape a world he did not understand or feel a part of. At age 29 that inexplicable and monumental moment of just asking for help finally happened. What he found next was a world of similarities and safety. People suffering a common plight who for so many reasons sought only peace and a reprieve, gave Matt something he felt he would never find or even knew he needed. From this spirit of acceptance, encouragement and simple understanding came a rebirth and eventually a desire to position himself as someone who could display the patience, understanding, and support needed to show them a better way. Stalworth is Matt’s current vehicle for this purpose.
