47 rehabs, 4 overdoses, homelessness, and a 6-month court-mandated program did not deter him.
Steve is now working part-time at a trendy restaurant, through our Building Futures Program and starting his addiction-free journey.
When he was younger, Steve took several culinary classes and developed an interest in cooking. Manor of Hope Founder, Steve Killelea recognized Steve’s interest in the culinary arts and partnered with local restauranteur Andrew Deery, executive chef and owner of Majolica restaurant to provide Steve with the education he desired.
Steve spends most of his days learning to prepare gastronomic feasts for Majolica’s patrons. He is braising rabbits, making bread and pasta, blanching octopus and preparing soups, and enjoying his rediscovered work ethic and his love of learning.
