Angela and Tracey as Individuals
A local girl, Angela grew up in North Charleston, South Carolina, and attended Summerville High School. She holds an undergraduate degree from Claflin University, and two master’s degrees from Columbia Southern University and the University of Phoenix (Criminal Justice). For the past twenty-five-plus years, Angela has served the City of North Charleston as a law enforcement officer.
Tracey hails from Georgia, where he completed high school and CDL training and worked as a truck driver for twelve years. He then moved to Charleston, South Carolina, where he was employed as a Correctional Officer at Leiber Correctional Institution for three years. After spending some time as a Port Security Officer, Tracey purchased an 18-wheeler and became self-employed. Throughout all these transitions, Tracey’s experience at Lieber gave him a desire to mentor and help young men make the right decisions in their lives.
Angela and Tracey met over a decade ago and were married in 2012 creating a blended family boasting a son and two daughters.
They both love kids and wanted to play a hands-on role in providing a stable home life and a sense of family for displaced youths while preparing them for the next phase of life. When they learned of Mickey’s House, they applied and were accepted as House Parents.
As house parents, Angela and Tracey strive to be good role models by building trust with every young man that resides at Mickey’s house – by providing a listening ear, dependability, stability, and above all the knowledge that they are seen and cared for as individuals.
