John Proctor

Founder and CEO of New Life Foundation

Born and raised in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. I spent 13 years in the US Army as a Food Professional. I participated in Desert Storm and Desert Shield. After the end of service, I worked for the Virginia Department of Corrections for 17 years as a Food Service Manager to Director. During that time I partnered with the National Restaurant Association and started a culinary arts program for offenders at the training facility I worked at. As a veteran and working with offenders for over 17 years, I know all too well the struggle and lack of resources available for these individuals. I am dedicated to provide any support or services needed, to get these men and women back on track for success. Whether it be mental well - being, sobriety or homelessness.
