BEL AIR, Md. — A Harford County man who was hooked on heroin turned his life around and is making an incredible difference in the community.

Daniel McGhee came close to losing life several times to drugs. The Bel Air native detailed his years struggling on the streets homeless and in and out of jail in his book, Chasing The Flawed Sun. Daniel left behind his life of wrong choices and started working at a restaurant to get back on his feet. He later formed his own bail bonds company and is now a successful realtor.

Daniel devotes his second chance at life to helping others. He started The Agape Projects, a non profit organization that assists recovering drug addicts on the road to recovery, the homeless community and anyone in need.

Daniel's first mission took underprivileged children Christmas shopping. The effort has grown tremendously and has inspired Daniel to continue giving back to others. The Agape Projects uses social media to promote new projects like its Valentine's Day cards that will be filled with gift cards and distributed to the homeless community. The non profit also recently raised thousands of dollars to help a Bel Air family that lost everything in a house fire.
