Overcoming Homelessness – Dewitt’s Story

Dewitt's Story

Through a series of unfortunate events, Dewitt Parker came to Mickey’s House in 2020, during the second semester of his senior year of high school.

Dewitt was initially apprehensive about living at Mickey’s House, but it did not take him long to realize that his fears were unfounded. Tracey and Angela Johnson – the current house parents, provided the support and guidance that had been lacking in his life.

With the stigmas and uncertainties associated with homelessness no longer an issue, Dewitt excelled at school – taking advanced courses and distinguishing himself in both track and football. After graduating from RB Stall High School, Dewitt was accepted at Charleston Southern University to study Psychology with the goal of becoming a psychotherapist.
