Our Advisory Council
Local Community Leaders
Often times we may find ourselves searching for a group of people that we can rely on to support our cause and share it with a community. It is important to select individuals that have a heart for service and understand the value of our services. We have been fortunate to have selected an incredible group of community leaders who have that kind of character and so much more. It is our honor to introduce to you The Ora Clubhouse Advisory Council.
Robert is a military veteran. He honorably served ten years in the United States Marine Corps. From 2008 through 2015, Robert worked various positions, including management in the food service and restaurant business. In 2016, Robert went through a very difficult time personally. He realized that he not only needed but also wanted to change his life for the better. Knowing he could not achieve recovery on his own, he sought help from his family. Robert knew he had to rebuild his relationship with God first. As he worked through this process, he realized that there are others who like him, needed help, support, and guidance without judgement. From this, Zero Hour Life Center was born.
