Izzy Profile Picture

Late Izzy Farrach, Co-Founder (Deceased)

Izzy was the first primary counselor for our homes. For Izzy, decades of struggling with addiction and substance abuse led to a variety of damaging experiences, including homelessness, crime and family crisis. The most permanent damage came in the form of life threatening illnesses, including hepatitis C and cirrhosis of the liver, from which he suffered even as he served our program attendees and a variety of other ministries.

Sober since 1994 and awaiting a necessary liver transplant, Izzy was compelled to share his experiences and testimony with men who are committed to recovery. As a single father of two boys and a widower after his wife Shawna passed away in 2013, he understood and respected the wide range of experiences that our program attendees bring with them.

Izzy also believed that the two years he spent in a sober living home played a large role in his long-term recovery and he always hoped that Izzy’s Place (our La Verne location) would play the same role in the lives of all our program attendees. He served as our first intake manager at Izzy’s Place – the home in La Verne that we named after him. Izzy worked as full time manager of The Vision House, a sober living home in Pomona, California, for 4 1/2 years.

Rob Redmon Profile Picture

Rob Redmon, Program Director

Rob Redmon serves Homes of Promise as the Program Director. He comes from a background of childhood abuse that led to self-destructive behavior from the ages of 13 to 20 which included self-mutilation, drugs and alcohol.

However, as is sometimes the case with addiction, the personal struggles and demands of life took their toll, and alcohol again found its way back into Rob’s life. No matter what he tried to do to feel accepted, loved and at peace, it was not until his last run with alcohol that he hit his bottom and his full recovery journey began. It was through the 12 step process that Rob discovered that holding on to his hurts, hang ups, and habits were blocking him from being the man God intended.  

Rob has been married for 36 years to Karen. They have 2 children – Michelle and Tim, and 6 grandchildren. He loves camping, fishing, hiking and skydiving.

Helping others who are struggling is Rob’s greatest joy. It is his compassion and desire to serve that has brought him to Homes of Promise. The hurts from childhood and the struggles of addiction led Rob to the place in life where by serving others, he has found contentment and peace.
