For over 10 years, he served as a volunteer for R.F.M (Resurrection Family Ministries), a non-profit organization that caters to the needs of families by providing assistance to the homeless, low income, special needs, and single parent households. While severing, he was able to inquire skills that helped him to impact the lives of those he served.
