Andre Norman, known to many as the "Ambassador of Hope" speaking at the W.O.R.T.H. Center on Friday. Born and raised in Boston, Norman found himself in prison by the age of 18 where he eventually had 100 years of sentences to his name. He says his life behind bars was filled with criminal activity just to survive. But one day he says God spoke to him and his life began to change as he addressed the underlying pain that made him act out.

Norman spent several days at the W.O.R.T.H. Center to get to know the residents and the treatment program. He says treatment works and that they are unlocking their potential by staying on course and treating their addiction. W.O.R.T.H. Center officials say it is beneficial for residents to hear from someone that has been there.

Norman encouraged the residents with this chant, "Why are we here? To learn", "What is our purpose? To succeed", and "How are we going to do it? Together".
