Tony Stapleton's TNT Ranch Recovery Home in Gulfport offers a long-term recovery program for homeless addicts. He originally started housing veterans in 1993, but his own family's struggle with addiction led him to take in homeless that needed help with addiction. The ranch's many buildings, including sheds, gazebos and trailers, were built by the clients who came to sober up. Some were not up code and so a new building is currently under construction. Stapleton provides a tour of the property and tells why it's important. Amanda McCoy amccoy@sunherald.com
