Dr. Vernus Swisher is the CEO of Career and Recovery Resources (CRR). With him is Cathy Mitchell, one of CRR's STAR Clients. After a period of homelessness, she overcame an addiction to crack cocaine and became a para-professional at Hastings High School. This fall, she will receive her bachelor's degree from Belhaven University. She is representative of the hard work people are willing to put in to pull themselves out of poverty and how they succeed with the help of Houston's non-profit organizations. Her success is the reason CRR honored her with their STAR Client award.
