Brandon Lite finds true happiness and contentment when helping others, and that’s one of the reasons he works as a Case Manager here at Vegas Stronger. The 24-year-old explains, “I have been provided with many gifts in life at such a young age. One of those gifts is through my own personal recovery from the disease of addiction and homelessness.”
Lite has been working in the nonprofit sector for just over 2 years now, after starting out at a smaller organization working with children, prior to running a food pantry where he found his passion working with the homeless population. After that he worked for the City of Las Vegas in homeless outreach.
Our Case Manager describes, “Through this work, I learn more about myself every day. In helping people help themselves, in a small form of self-centeredness, I get to experience my own growth. My primary goal is to help people. I was given the opportunity to do case management with Vegas Stronger and in return, I get the best of both worlds.”
When not working, you can find the recovery advocate weightlifting, BMX biking, or playing softball. Brandon Lite concludes, “I find a good symbiotic balance through these hobbies, work, school, and recovery, that all balance each other out. I am grateful for Vegas Stronger for allowing me to truly ‘Live the dream.’”
