Imagine telling your kids you have no place to go. Imagine having to tell your child, he is homeless.

That is exactly what happened to 29-year-old Terrill Ford when he was just eleven-years-old.

Terrill's family was forced from their home - leaving his mother and his siblings to find shelter wherever they could.

Those times were tough for Terrill. He was teased, taunted and got in some trouble too.

But despite his situation, the Inkster man, decided to become successful.

Terrill finished high school and enlisted in the Army. However he's not finished yet.

Terrill believes, coaches and mentors make the nation great. So he became both.

“My success means nothing, if I don’t have successors. Everyone says we need to do something, but whose going to do it. I said ill do it," Terrill says boldly.

This Saturday at the Inkster recreation complex, Terrill is hosting a summer seminar, called Streets to Success - to empower young people to see the opportunities placed before them and the many paths you can take to be great.
