Doorways of Hope Luncheon featuring keynote speaker Danny Trejo
Presented by:

When: Thursday, February 23, 2017 @ 11:30 a.m.
Where: Omni San Antonio Hotel at the Colonnade

Alpha Home is excited to announce actor/producer, actor/producer Danny Trejo will be the keynote speaker at its upcoming 11th Annual Doorways of Hope luncheon presented by Valero Energy Foundation

At the luncheon, Danny will be speaking about his own Journey to Recovery, highlighting his transition from imprisonment to his life as a devoted father of three and an intervention counselor, both roles that he says bring him the most satisfaction. 

"I was an addict and alcoholic and I know that road," said Trejo. "That road leads to death, institutions or insanity. I've been sober for 48 years and have had a great, great life."

Alcoholism and addiction affects lives, families and communities across our nation and around the world. Since 1966, Alpha Home has served as a pathway of hope, healing and recovery through spiritually based drug and alcohol services and support.
