Spotlighting The Hand Up Project

Kixi Logo

This week we hear from Robert Smiley with “The Hand Up Project.” Robert reveals his “why” about helping addicts and the reason he looks at them and treats them as human beings. Robert and his team of volunteers, many are recovering addicts. Robert’s team goes into homeless camps and cleans up the area. They invite addicts to get into detox and rehab. He realizes the drug takes them over and the way they behave is not who they are but he knows they can beat it with the help of support and community.
