Jack has given 100% to Freebirds from the very beginning. He is one of the founders of the Center and has lived full time at the facility since December 2004.He has volunteered over 13,000 hours. He works a full time program not only for himself but is a mentor to many others in recovery. When asked how he felt about receiving the award, Jack very humbly stated it takes everyone working together to make a difference. Jack’s dedication makes a difference not only in the lives of individuals here at Freebirds but in our entire community. What a difference FreeBirds is making in God’s Kingdom.
