Charmaine Williams, a current AT&T employee in Dallas, was on the verge of homelessness many times throughout her adolescence. Her mom was often in between jobs, while trying to raise a family and battle health issues. This experience softened Charmaine’s heart to the truths of homelessness, and she is now on a mission to change the perception of those who are often overlooked.
Through Believe DallasSM, an AT&T initiative focused on addressing the needs of the homeless, Charmaine is hoping to show that homelessness doesn’t have to be the end of the story for people who are struggling – there can be success on the other side. Believe DallasSM is giving Charmaine, and other AT&T employees, the opportunity to connect to each other, and the homeless community, on a human level. Charmaine and AT&T’s mission is to convey to those struggling that they are more than what others think of them by reminding them that Dallas cares.
