Norman Carter, Executive Director and Founder of Carter House, a recovery based men's three quarter house located in Youngstown, Ohio. After surviving his own battle with drug addiction, Carter was compelled and inspired to fulfill his passion of giving back in support of men who struggle with drug addiction. His mission is to ensure a safe, stable and supportive living environment designed to encourage sustained abstinence from drugs and maintain recovery.
When Mr. Carter made the decision to change his life for the better in January of 2010, he credits his stay in a similar facility as a positive step in the right direction. His goal is that the men who come to live at Carter House will learn to gain the same sense of responsibility that he developed as well as the skills and confidence to pursue productive lives.
