Hunter is originally from a small town in North Carolina called Cherryville. He was a very active athlete and excelled in school, even with this strong foundation he found himself in the grips of an addiction that led to a life of homelessness. He was introduced to a twelve-step program while homeless on the streets of Yonkers, New York. A seed of hope was planted during the first meeting he attended; Hunter found hope in knowing that there was a different life available to him when he was ready. After exhausting all options, going in and out of every detox and sober living he was given one last chance. Hunter currently has 11 months of sobriety and is grateful to have the opportunity to share his experience with the men in the program. He believes that Palm Coast Transitions gives young men a second chance at life and it has become his passion to help others grow. Recovery has given Hunter a meaningful life that includes the ability to be self-supporting and the opportunity to have open communication with his family. Hunter knows that if he can build a life in recovery, anyone can if they are willing.
