John Killelea, Director of Client Advocacy

John’s passion is helping individuals struggling with addiction. He understands from experience what this horrible disease can do to a person and their family. John grew up in South Jersey and began experimenting with drugs in High School. His use rapidly spiraled out of control and consequently, John struggled with heroin addiction for over ten years. He entered countless thirty and sixty day rehab programs during that period. He never found the help he needed or any sustained success through those programs. As John’s addiction progressed he ended up homeless living on the streets of South Florida.

By chance, he was admitted to a therapeutic community. John was finally able to find the environment he needed to heal and adequate time away from his old life, allowed him to achieve long term sobriety. He has been substance free since June 23, 2014 and is attending college to become a certified addictions counselor. His firsthand experience with this disease is invaluable when it comes to relating to and empathizing with our residents. He helps residents navigate the many pitfalls and trials that all people face during their recovery.

Andrew Deery, Culinary Director

Andrew was born and raised in Phoenixville, PA where he first discovered his passion for cooking. From an early age, he was inspired by his grandfather’s extensive vegetable gardens and his grandmother’s love of cooking. Following graduation from Phoenixville High School, Andrew attended Baltimore International Culinary College and earned an Associates Degree in Professional Cooking in 1992.

Andrew relocated to Maine, working in fine dining restaurants where he gained an appreciation for the seasonality of ingredients supplied by a
network of local farmers, foragers, and fishermen. He resided in Maine for 8 years before returning to his hometown of Phoenixville to pursue his ambition of opening his own restaurant.

In 2004, Andrew opened Majolica, a 40-seat, dinner-only BYOB restaurant highlighting quality local ingredients and exceptional service. The restaurant and staff received numerous awards and accolades, including the “Best Chef of Chester County,” a three-bell review from the Philadelphia Inquirer, and was highlighted in many publications including the cover of the internationally circulated Art Culinaire Magazine.

Andrew has been open about his challenges with past substance use and has lived a sober lifestyle for the past 8 years. This decision led him to an introduction to Steve Killelea, founder of the Manor of Hope. Majolica partnered with the Manor, participating in the Building Futures Program, which places Manor residents in safe work environments, and allows them to learn a trade.

Majolica employed one of the first Manor residents Steve S., who quickly became a valuable member of the staff and friend. Andrew wished that Majolica end on a high note and held Majolica’s last service on the 15th anniversary of its opening on December 7th, 2019. It remains a source of pride and completion in his life, and he considers the relationships he made with customers as its greatest benefit.

Andrew wanted to share his accumulated skill, experience and expertise with the Manor program, and joined the staff as Culinary Director in January
2020. As Director, Andrew prepares meals for/with manor residents and conducts weekly culinary classes. Additionally, Andrew runs the Manor Agricultural Program, overseeing the planning and maintenance of the culinary gardens. He also functions as staff beekeeper, maintaining 12 hives and overseeing honey processing and online sales.

Owner Steve Killelea continually re-invests in his staff, providing them with opportunities to further their education and experience in the field of
recovery. Andrew has taken advantage of this opportunity and has been awarded a certification in CPR and is a PA state-certified family recovery
specialist (CFRS).

In between his duties, Andrew can be found sharing his interest in yoga, kayaking, or guitar with manor residents.

Scott Hoffman

Scott Hoffman
From a young age, Scott felt a deep-seated desire to make a positive impact on the lives of others. His journey began with aspirations of becoming a physician assistant, but fate had other plans. Following his first year in college, Scott shifted his focus to psychology, driven by an innate calling to understand the complexities of the human mind.

However, amidst the pursuit of his academic dreams, Scott found himself ensnared in the clutches of addiction. Prescription pills meant to enhance his focus and aid his studies became a gateway to a decade-long struggle with substance abuse. The road led him to substances he never thought he would encounter, from heroin to methamphetamine, resulting in overdoses, hospitalizations, and brushes with the law.

Scott’s journey to recovery reached a turning point when he discovered Manor of Hope. Over 18 transformative months, he shattered the chains that bound him to addiction, discovering that true happiness didn’t require the crutch of substances. Simple joys, like laughter with friends and exhilarating activities like skiing and white-water rafting, became sources of fulfillment.

Graduating from the program in early 2020, Scott embraced a new chapter as a Certified Recovery Specialist (CRS) at Manor of Hope. Today, he thrives in a meaningful life alongside his wife and family, engaging in activities such as exercising, meditating, hiking, and expressing himself through music with his guitar.

At Manor of Hope, Scott’s greatest strength lies in his unwavering empathy for residents. Leading the Recovery Dharma meeting in the Wellness Center every week, he takes pride in connecting with and guiding individuals on their journey to a better life. Scott’s sense of purpose emanates from his hope that others will experience the same freedom and joy of sobriety he has found. He stands ready to do whatever it takes to facilitate the transformation of those coming through the program, ensuring they too can embrace a life of lasting recovery and fulfillment.
