Last Wednesday, the Manor of Hope residents attended a very special event in which former college and NBA player Chris Herren, told his story.

Chris Herren is a clear example of how the disease of addiction impacts many of us, without discrimination.  Chris had a bright future, yet he lost it all because of his addiction. After completing intensive rehabilitation programs, Herren has been alcohol and drug-free since August 1, 2008. He formed The Herren Project in 2011 to increase awareness on all of the dangers of substance abuse and to provide assistance to take the first steps towards living a sober life.

Chris’s story is one of Hope.
