Many times, it’s the hard turns we take in life that provide the greatest lessons and lead us to create projects of passion and purpose. At one point in her journey, Stephanie Bowman was homeless and had lost custody of her children. Once she was clean and sober, she founded “One Heart for Women & Children” to ensure that other women had the resources she did not. Plus, veteran David Williams was homeless for 14 years. Now he shows others their lives can change for the better, as a homeless ambassador for the City of Orlando. At 100 years of age, Dr Loretta Ford is truly a Rock Star of Aging ®, as she continues to support the role she co-founded in 1965 – nurse practitioners.
