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. In January 2018, after receiving supportive services from the Coalitions’ 50th Street Family Program for over a year, Wilbert Atkins, a single father, and his daughter Sasha moved into permanent affordable housing. 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.
