Mike's Inspiring Journey

Congratulations to Mike, who was recently honored as one of three finalists for the inspirational ACHSA Award at a banquet at the Los Angeles Biltmore Hotel. Mike, whose personal journey took him from successful business owner to 17 years as a homeless man battling mental illness and addiction and, now, to a productive citizen with 10 years sobriety, received an official commendation from the County of Los Angeles, signed by all five County Supervisors. Although Mike did not win the top ACHSA award, which recognizes people who have made great strides in living with mental illness and addiction, he humbly stated, “I understand why that guy did win”. Mike is an inspiration to us all.
