Salvation Army Story No. 4: Kenny

When Kenny’s mother passed away in 2010, life spiraled out of control. Kenny engaged heavily into drugs; selling and using. Tired of drugs and to serve a lesser jail sentence, Kenny entered the Adult Rehabilitation Center.

“It had to be God who sent me to The Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center,” said Kenny. “Everything fell into place.” It was in the Family Store that Kenny found his love again with the saxophone. “The saxophone reminded me of the first one my mother brought me. I ordered a kit and fixed it up and worked just as good as the one I had before,” said Kenny.

He now practices with ARC Jazz Band every week after work as well as goes to church. “I want to be a good Christian,” said Kenny. “I haven’t had drugs or a drink in three years. Alcohol doesn’t phase me.”
