Michael Smith – Executive Director



Mike has been serving at 24/7 House since November 2013. Mike is in recovery and entered a faith/evidence based long-term recovery residence program in July 2008 and completed in 2010.

His passion is to help men and women, with addiction, to escape the chains of slavery and, to teach them how to live without drugs or alcohol. Mike believes no man or woman comes through the doors of 24/7 House by mistake. He believes in God’s miracles because he is one.



 Jimmy Kerr

Program Director

Jimmy was deep in addiction, hopeless, and near death before entering the 24/7 House program of recovery in March of 2016.After 14 months, he completed the program here at th 24/7 House. Jimmy had plans to return to Atlanta, where he was from and begin a different life. God had other plans for Jimmy. He remained here at the 24/7 House in order to give back to others what was freely given to him. He was working in the office here 2 days a week and also maintaining a part time job in Baxley. Jimmy was dedicated in helping others in addiction find recovery, and then the door opened for him to begin a full time staff position here at the 24/7 House. Today Jimmy strives to do God’s will and work. He is a blessing to the 24/7 House and its residents. Today,Jimmy has found his purpose



Jessica Kabbes

Assistant Director

Jessica had always wanted to help others she felt it to be a calling, but the disease of addiction got in the way. She entered the 24/7 house just like many broken and hopeless. She thought she had no purpose in life. Throughout the program she became closer to God and while walking in His will for her she found her purpose, to help others like herself. Upon her completion God opened a door for her. she has committed herself to 24/7 House, this time as apart of staff. She believes nothing happens in God’s world by mistake and that she can show others it can be done if you are willing and ready to change.
