Tee Tee Ware (also known as simply Tee) is an energetic, strong-willed extrovert from the state of Washington. This wasn’t always the case for Tee. In June 2017, he found himself coming through the doors of The Midnight Mission in a losing battle with drug and alcohol addiction.
Tee rose from his bottom through a willingness to work a recovery program. He took advantage of every resource TMM had to offer. He attended 12 step meetings and worked closely with his advocate. Through his vigorous action, Tee found a new outlook on life and peace from within.
He found purpose in helping others through various service projects, and he kept every commitment he made. While at TMM, he tried to be a positive example to other men coming through the program. Tee knew how hard it was to be away from family and having to follow the rules, so he used his experience, strength, and hope to encourage others.
Today, Tee is surrounded by those who are cheering for each step he takes forward. He has built a community around him that gives him support and direction. Tee is a member of the Skid Row Running Club, a runner’s club that uses the power of running to improve the lives of those who are at risk for homelessness and addiction. Tee’s running is another way to offer hope to struggling men and women.
Tee has found permanent employment at The Midnight Mission. He brings personal empathy to our homeless neighbors who come to our door for help. Tee’s positivity is a testimony today; no matter how hard things are, if you see it through, results will come.
