Aaron grew up in a violent home with drugs and alcohol. By the age of 15, he was using meth and heroin. He ended up homeless and was in and out of jail.
Aaron transformed his life and he's now helping other kids avoid the same mistakes he made. Every year, Lost Angels Children's Project raffles one classic car that was worked on by the kids. The proceeds go to help homeless shelters and children in need.
