Damion was part of ReWork Project before it even existed. He first jumped in to help us remodel our church space, later helping build out the ReWork location. It was clear from the beginning he wanted to be a part of our community.
At the time, Damion was living in the woods. Poor health and brutal living conditions were taking their toll. But he began building projects and even grew to be a leader in the woodshop, helping others and keeping the shop moving.
It wasn’t long before Damion became part of the family, even living with ReWork staff at times. Through friendship and discipleship, Damion began slowly turning things around despite the very real and continual challenges of health, addiction and social issues.
Eventually, Damion moved into his own place, and in 2014, moved back to North Carolina to re-establish a relationship with his family. Today, he is still off the streets and even though his success has taken him elsewhere, he will always be part of our community.
