“At the CityTeam Engage experience I was able to see some of the CityTeam San Jose facilities and hear incredible first-hand testimony of lives that were changed from those of hopelessness and addiction. Many of the people I met were well on the path of recovery and on their way to becoming contributing members of society again.”
