ABOUT THE CHEF:
Chef Cecil Morris Jr., the Culinary Arts Manager at the Salvation Army of Coastal Alabama, is one of the command's proudest success stories.
Morris went through the Salvation Army treatment program because of a 15-year addiction that threatened to ruin his life, but he turned it around with the help of the Salvation Army. In 1993, Morris began as a transient and later progressed into a client of the Corps Salvage Rehabilitation Center (CSRC). The process, as with many beginning recovery, was not without difficulty. He was dismissed shortly after entering the program for behavioral problems. Morris attributes the problems to street living and his fear of the unfamiliar. Morris soon found out The Salvation Army is a place for second chances.
Most new clients in the CSRC program are assigned to the kitchen as a dishwasher. As Morris made his way through the recovery process, he also rose through the kitchen ranks. He was originally hired as a part-time cook, but after various positions and promotions, Morris became Culinary Arts Manager, a position he proudly holds today.
Morris has continued to stay with The Salvation Army despite other offers of employment because he wants to give back. With a new life of sobriety, he feels it is his responsibility to give the support and encouragement he received to others. Today's clients face similar challenges to those Chef Cecil faced during his recovery. He is proof that second chances really do work, giving hope to many who face serious addiction.
