Generous Lawyer Donates His House to Homeless Family for 1 Year

January 9, 2013

51 year-old attorney Tony Tolbert donated the house he lives in to a homeless family for an entire year. As for Tolbert, he is moving back in with his parents.

Tolbert had never even met the family moving into his house. He found them through Alexandria House, a homeless shelter for women and children. For that family, everything has changed.

Felicia Dukes and three of her four children were all living in a single room at the shelter. Due to the shelter's rules, her oldest child was not allowed to live with them. Thanks to Tolbert's generosity, Felicia and all four of her children will reunite in a fully furnished home in Los Angeles.

Tolbert claims his inspiration came from growing up in his childhood home, which often offered the less fortunate a place to sleep at night.

"You don't have to be Bill Gates or Warren Buffet or Oprah," Tolbert told CBS. "We can do it wherever we are, with whatever we have, and for me, I have a home that I can make available."

Tolbert received his education at Harvard and is now a very successful lawyer. This is his way of giving back to the community.
