Adam's Story

Adam was not really involved in his daughters' life until her mother abandoned them.  Then, Adam found himself homeless and responsible for raising his daughter alone. He was lost until he found The Family Tree's MENS program. The program helped him find housing, a job, and the support he needed to build a strong relationship with his child.  For the first time, he had choices in life.
