Lawyer Gives Struggling Family His Home For a Year

By// Brandon Byrd

LA Lawyer Tony Tolbert must still be in the holiday spirit after his recent act of kindness. The Harvard grad decided to allow a homeless family of five to live in his fully furnished home for one whole year, reports Felicia Dukes and her three children were living in the Alexandria House, a local shelter for women and children, when she was told of Tolbert’s amazing gift.

“I am just really happy,” Dukes, told a CBS reporter when her family, including her adult son who was not allowed at the Alexandria House, arrived at Tolbert’s home. Tolbert attributes his generosity to his parents, who allowed people in need to stay in his room after he left their home. Tolbert will be living with his parents over the course of the year.
