Wilbert Akins & his daughter
Mr. Wilbert Atkins was unemployed and lived between family members and homeless shelters. When Mr. Atkins gained custody of his daughter Sasha, she became Mr. Atkins motivation to improve his life. Mr. Atkins and his daughter entered the 50th Street Family Program on January 12, 2015.

They love their new place and Sasha is doing well in school. Mr. Atkins stated that he feels like a man again and a productive father. He works full-time as an Information Technology technician at the Office of Chief Technology Officer (OCTO). Today, this family is safe, warm and self-sufficient.
