Kevin Hawkins’ Testimony


One is not always prepared for what happens in life, even less if untreated wounds from the past are brought to the surface. When I arrived at The Belkin House I was broke. I had my heart broken and had broken my own heart. The combination of an unhealthy relationship of seven years and my daughter and her mother moving a thousand miles away, left me shattered.

With the support of the staff, programs, and my councillor and chaplain, Stephen Bell (to whom I am eternally grateful), I am getting back on track as a healthy, happy, productive human being. Working in and for my community, with children at O.B.N.H and as a shelter worker for The Haven, is rewarding to me. I can’t exactly say where this journey will end up, but I have faith in the path that I am on.
