Over the past few months we have been working with photographer Howard Barlow to document the stories of lives transforming in the back streets of Salford through the work of Victory Outreach’s Recovery Homes. Lives once exiled, sleeping rough on the streets, addicted to crack cocaine, heroin and alcohol, have found a community where they are welcomed, loved and accepted, just as they are. During their recovery they have found a deep faith in God. Broken lives are turned around, addictions crushed, hope is given and dreams are made reality.
Howard and Lesley visited Kevin’s home to meet his family. Kevin always longed to be a dad, but years of life on the streets was harsh until one day he knew he couldn’t go on any longer. After discovering a sense of belonging to God he got the help he needed and now has a beautiful family of his own. Read and listen to Kevin and others stories of belonging, If you are moved by their stories or troubled by addiction and want to receive help you can contact Kevin at Victory Outreach and their Recovery Homes program on 0161 737 6624 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
