Vanessa Seiber is eager to be on this new journey at the Road to Hope. She has lived in recovery housing herself, and received her CDCA in 2017. Recovery Housing was the starting point of Vanessa’s sobriety. She knows on a personal level the importance of building a strong foundation in order to maintain sobriety. Recovery Housing taught her how to live. The one thing that gives Vanessa the best feeling in the world is watching someone thrive in recovery and helping others using her own experience. Vanessa is from and currently resides in Cleveland. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, hanging out with friends and her family (most of all, her Grandma).

Steve has been involved with people in recovery for 28 yrs. He is from Warren, Ohio and attended Warren G. Harding High School. Has resided in Elyria since 2017. Steve’s own journey in recovery started in recovery housing. Recovery housing taught him how to live life on life’s terms, a variety of life skills and most importantly that self-sacrificing work for others is vital for permanent recovery. This allowed him to realize that he wanted to pursue a career in the field of recovery housing. He was a volunteer resident manager in a recovery housing program. Steve learned that there was no greater feeling than helping another person in recovery! The joy you feel when watching someone grow and progress in the program of recovery is indescribable! Apart from his duties as the Men’s Program Director, he enjoys getting to know the residents on a personal level. In his free time Steve enjoys going to the movies, going out to dinner or coffee, and camping.
Jeffrey Kamms is the Executive Director and co-founder of the Road to Hope, a recovery housing program for individuals with substance abuse issues. Along with his staff, Jeff enjoys the challenge of bringing individuals from their dysfunctional living environments and fatal states of mind and body, to happier, healthier, motivated individuals and integrating them back into the community, and, more importantly, their family, as successful and committed members of the Twelve Step community. With over 20 years experience in recovery and over 11 years experience as Executive Director of the Road to Hope Inc., Jeff often finds himself drawing off the secret weapon that God has equipped him with: an unparalleled network of individuals and volunteers that profoundly step in and impact the lives of everyone involved. Jeff has a niche for reading the heart of an individual, and he often says "Even with all the procedures and formats that are out there, I will always love the personal touch of sitting down with each individual and having our hearts touch in a way that is unexplainable." Under Jeff's leadership the Road to Hope has grown from 1 house servings 6 individuals in 2007, to 2 houses in 2009 serving 12 individuals, to 3 houses in 2010 serving 20, to currently having a 12,000 square ft. facility and 2 houses serving 34 men and 18 women plus a meeting facility and event center serving countless individuals. Along with another location that is on the horizon in the near future. Jeff lives in Lorain county with his lovely, supportive wife Kristina and his 3 wonderful children. When not following his calling, Jeff enjoys camping, hunting, and building on his relationship with God. Jeff's motivation for life is something that came from an instrumental person in his life. Her name was Becky and she said this: "Nobody said it would be easy, but it will be worth it." Jeff can be reached at the email address listed above, he looks forward to hearing from you. God Bless!
