Making Recovery Possible By Transforming Lives




The Spark Recovery Community was founded by hip hop artist Deshawn White. After years of using and selling drugs, Deshawn was radically set free from drug use when he encountered Jesus on tour.  White currently uses his music and speaking platforms to bring awareness to the opioid and drug crisis in our nation.​

Vision Statement: Making recovery possible by transforming lives.

Mission Statement: Making recovery possible by transforming lives one day at a time is the mission of The Spark Recovery Community. We are a Christ-centered recovery program that assists men and women with addiction issues.

Our goal is to bear their burden by loving and equipping them through the transformation process. We believe that Christ can and will heal them by giving them the power to overcome addiction as they work through our program.

After completing The Spark Recovery Program, our hope is that men and women will be functional thriving citizens. We also want to equip them to return to their families with tools and skills to serve their loved ones and God.

How can I

help the



In most cases, when people who are struggling with addiction reach out for help, they have no money, no place to live, and no hope. The Spark is an intensive 12-month program that focuses on transforming and restoring our clients to being fully functional members of society. We also work closely with counselors and other medical professionals. Due to the time commitment and intense schedule, we don’t allow our clients to work for the first 8 months of our program. We become their caretakers until they are released to work. Our program is donation funded and volunteer-driven. Here’s how you can partner with The Spark Recovery Community to see lives transformed. 

  • Financial Donations
  • Ministry Partnerships
  • Material Donations (Food, Appliances, Clothing, Toiletries, Etc)
  • Volunteer
  • Join Our Prayer Team

Feel free to contact us if you are interested in more information about how you can partner with us!
