When Antwon’s kids get a little older, he plans to tell them what he’s been through. A 25-year-old father of three, he’s working hard to give them all a better life.
Today, he is employed as a plumber, studying to get his GED and has completed a leadership and empowerment program for young fathers… twice. But this is a life he never imagined.
Antwon grew up in the Woodland Terrace housing development in Washington, DC where many families live off an annual income of $7000 per year.
