LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — The Hope Center in Lexington held their annual Alumni Picnic on Saturday afternoon.

Anyone who graduated from their men's recovery center was welcome to attend with their families.

They celebrated today with food, music and games.

It's a chance for former clients to stay connected and even inspire others who are in the process of recovering from drug and alcohol addiction.

“I think without the Hope Center I'd probably be homeless either that or dead, and this place saved my life and I’m eternally grateful for this place and everybody in it,” said Marvin Lear.
