Biography

“Walter's speaking at his Men's Conference in San Francisco dramatically changed my life. I took advantage of his ongoing support programs. In a matter of months, with Walter’s help, I was able to free myself from drugs, alcohol, and the lifestyle and income that went with it, regain custody of my children, moved out of the Tenderloin to Sacramento, and married a wonderful woman. I now have the family that was my childhood dream. I have a new life.”
—Willie Hardin
