Executive Director

Darin Valdez

Darin Valdez is a native of Colorado. His sobriety date is Jan 2, 2014. After spending over 7 years of his life homeless on the streets of Denver addicted to meth, he was blessed with the gift of sobriety. After graduating treatment at Sobriety House here in Denver, he became a house manager and Certified Addictions Counselor at the same treatment center that helped him get sober. With the support of a local non-profit, CrossPurpose, he was able to develop his dream of creating a community of supportive artists in recovery. He began to create workshops that focused on tying creativity to recovery. He has since received support from The Caring for Denver Foundation and partnered with many recovery programs throughout the city to continue offering hope through the creative process. He is an inspirational advocate for finding alternative pathways to freedom from homelessness and addiction. See more of his story at https://www.coloradoartistsinrecovery.org/darin-s-story-1
