“My life changed with this program and my success is largely, if not entirely, a direct result of my own participation here.” – “Ali” Clyde Wilson
A native Atlantan, Ali attended Miles College on Scholarship in Birmingham in 1980, but dropped out when his growing addiction to cocaine made it impossible to manage his classes. After many years struggling with drug and alcohol abuse, Ali entered the Trinity House-Big Bethel program in the year 2000.
Two years later, Ali re-enrolled in Miles College. This time he graduated with a B.S. in Business Administration before returning to Atlanta to take a permanent position at Trinity House-Big Bethel. Ali’s community service goes well beyond the walls of Trinity House-Big Bethel, as he’s currently a member of the Senior Usher Board and Finance Team of Mt. Gilead Baptist Church, the Metro Atlanta Task Force for the Homeless, and Future Men of Atlanta Foundation.
