For the last 10 years, Trevor has been in our kitchen, following his passion. But before he was a chef for the Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries Men’s Shelter, he was a guest.

Trevor came to our door when he had nowhere else to go. Having just gotten out of prison, he was dedicated to turning his life around. Thanks to the support of faithful friends like you, Trevor was given a chance to find renewal at DRMM.

“I just let God guide my life right now,” he says.

Once Trevor began following the Lord’s guidance, everything changed.

While he was participating in the Getting It Right Returning Citizen’s Mentorship Program, Trevor signed up for our culinary arts training. He knew job readiness was the first step to rebuilding his life. More importantly, he loves to cook.

“It makes me feel good when I prepare a meal, and then the people come back and say, ‘That was a good meal, Chef,’” Trevor reflects. “It lets you know that you did a good job.”
