The Coalition sends their condolences to the family of One Day at a Time (ODAAT) Founder and Former President Rev. Henry T. Wells. Wells recently passed away last Wednesday, September 11, 2013. ODAAT, a long-time UAC Program Partner, is dedicated to serving low-income and homeless men and women in Philadelphia who are afflicted by addiction and HIV/AIDS. Rev. Wells founded ODAAT in 1983 to save a countless number of lives during Philadelphia's drug epidemic in the 80s and 90s. 30 years later, ODAAT continues to be a safe environment serving thousands of residential clients at its facilities providing recovery addiction counseling, access to health and social services, transitional housing, and community outreach. Rev. Wells was a good friend and strong supporter of the Coalition; he is a pioneer who will be deeply missed.
