Ramon Cruz was born and raised in the Kensington/Fairhill section of Philadelphia. As a person of lived experience, he has become an advocate for people with substance use disorder and mental health challenges.


Ramon is recovering from many years of substance use disorder and prison incarceration. He recently celebrated four years in recovery and is very active in his community. Ramon is very passionate about helping remove the stigma of co-occurring challenges and re-entry for ex-offenders.
