Lee at the Gate -- Urban Ministries of Durham

Leeatthegate600 At left, my friend Lee. 

Back in the 80s and 90s, he was a high-level hotel exec doing just fine until he discovered cocaine.  Soon enough he was broke and close to broken -- in line on the stoop at Urban Ministries of Durham, looking for a bed.

That was two years ago.  Now he's clean, living well and working full time as UMD's food and clothing services manager.  A happy circle.

Click here for two audio minutes of Lee (1.8MB)* on what he's seeing and thinking today, now that he's staff and not a resident.

Thank you for taking the time.


*sorry for the file size.  I'm still learning :-)
